Tax The Smart

Here's an idea. Let's relieve Greece of its economic woes by levying a classical culture tax on all the rest of us.

Where would philosophy be without Socrates, Plato and Aristotle? Government without Pericles, Aspasia and Demosthenes? Physics without Archimedes? Poetry without Homer? Drama (and psychoanalysis) without Sophocles and Aristophanes? Medicine without Galen?
