I am giving these away for free. They are hard-won. No need to thank me. In D I 6, "Sparta" = the classical best regime, i.e., Plato's "City in Speech" or Aristotle's "Polity." "Venice" = Epicureanism. In D I 52, "Piero" vascilating between support for the Medici and support for "freedom" = philosophy's choice between the people (populace) and the great (nobles). "Piero," like medieval philosophy, made the right choice for the wrong reason, and so was ruined.
