This guy is a great thinker, philosopher

Socrates was a great philospher in ancient Greece. His passionate advocacy of rational reasoning paved the way for the quantum leap in the Western civilisation from bigoted and muddle-headed superstition to progressive and scientific thinking.

All courses of Western philosophy and political science in First World's universities today begin with Plato's and Aristotle's records of Socrates's thoughts and activities. Of course, one can still question and challenge with pens, not swords, the Socratic school of thought.
