DEMOSTENES
AGAINST PHILIPP 3
...And know this too: Everything that the Hellens were suffering by the Lakedaemonians, or
by us, they were suffering by blood of Hellas, and that is like, a son, real one, born in a rich house,
is not managing the home like he should, so he deserves correction and objection, but you cant say
that he was doing all that as someone not close or successor of all that. But if a servant or a foster
son destroys that, which not belongs to him, oh Heracles, how frightful and worthy of anger, anyone
would say it is. But against Philipp and against what he does, they dont say that, even that he is
not a Hellen, nor anything close to the Hellens, and not even a barbarian from a country,
worthy of saying something good about, but he is plague from Macedonia, from where a man,
in earlier days, wouldnt buy even a slave.
