Socrates Through Time

Socrates: "Everyone in Athens is stupid. I'm traveling to the future when people  will have learned more so i can have someone smart to talk to for once."

Description: Socrates enters a phone booth and time travels to the future.

Socrates: "Ah, the future! Through the dialectic process of philosophy, they all should have become so wise and understand the truth!"

Socrates, the year 1300: "Burning heathens? This is stupid as hell. Why haven't people gotten any smarter?"

Socrates, the year 1932: "Mr. Hitler, your ideas are dumb as shit, have you considered that?"

Socrates, the year 1970: "This is what they are calling philosophy!?"

Socrates, present day on a computer: "Great, finally! An Agora the size of the Earth, where the best ideas can flourish."

Person: "And this is what's called a “comment section”, it allows an open dialogue across the earth."

Description: Socrates stares at the computer in shock and disbelief.

Socrates: "Do you happen to have any hemlock on you?"
If i could travel back in time i would give Hitler a printout of the wikipedia page of logical fallacies to help improve his critical thinking abilities, thus preventing the Holocaust.
