    Read Meditations. Marcus Aurelius was not very intelligent.

      It's one of the consequences of stoicism and of general apathy.

      Stoicism teaches that your mind is the only thing you have full control over, you especially cannot influence other people. So if you feel upset about what other people do or think, just stop trying to change them and focus on changing your attitude towards the issue.

      It's easy to understand how someone who thinks like this would not be a great father.

        wasn't there a stoic emperor who refused to care when the goths ravaged all of the roman Balkans because of his philosophy

            Except MA launched a years long invasion against Marcomani tribes and was probably the closest to conquer Germany out of all Roman emperors

        MA writes in his Meditations that we should improve the things we have control of (he doesn't say its only ones mind) and he also writes that we should direct other thinking people to live a better life.

      To be honest his second latest film, "The Last Duel", while a very well made film, did also lack good colour, but that's more or less justified since 90% of people associate the middle ages with colourlessness

        Saint Terry Davis (PBUH) spoke about this phenomena.

        Alien films and Gladiator. Kingdom of Heaven is my guilty pleasure - really bad in terms of story and characters (except for Baldwin and Saladin), but visually looks very nice and as there's always a shortage of medieval films for me I can't complain too much.

        Those from 1967 and 1970.
        That from 1987 is a decent mini series.
        There is also a black&white movie from 1927 which is far better than Ridley the Daltonist's version.
