I guess it all goes back to the age old question, “If you want to brutally rework the strings of time, and need to kidnap an ancient Greek to formulate your plan for you, which ancient Greek do you pick?”
A goody goody like Solon? A cunning realist like Pericles? A lovable kook like Parmenides? A clever psychologist like Aeschylus? A dick, like Euripides?
Nah, you go with Aristophanes. I don’t know what that evil plan would look like, but even if entirely unsuccessful, it would probably be pretty damn fun.
