Diogenes says

Based on what we know of Diogenes of Sinope, he was something of a douche. Then again, come on, weren’t they all douchebags, these ancient Greek thinkers? Wearing their precious philosophy like a badge of honor in a flourishing slave society.

Supposedly Diogenes was a slave too at some point. Still, he comes across as just intentionally difficult and sometimes cheaply provocative. I don’t know about you, but where I’m from people piss in the street with no philosophy whatsoever to back it up.

All of this aside, there’s many things Diogenes said that were spot on. Here’s one:

In a rich man’s house, there’s no place to spit but his face”.

If you know some rich people, try it out and report your findings to SAWOS.
