Greece v. Rome

(I originally posted this at The American Catholic, and I thought the classical history mavens of Almost Chosen People might find it of interest.)

From 2016.  Boris Johnson stands for Ancient Greece and historian Mary Beard stands for Ancient Rome.  A politician like Boris Johnson is odd on the British contemporary scene and almost unthinkable on the American scene at any time since the earliest days of our Republic.   Politicians with good academic skills can be good or bad, but I do view Johnson as refreshing at a time when most politicians seem to get their knowledge base from Twitter.
