Could the sacred band of thebes work in modern times?

>The Sacred Band of Thebes was a troop of select soldiers, consisting of 150 pairs of male lovers which formed the elite force of the Theban army in the 4th century BC.

Would it be feasible to try this again? or is the concept of love so removed from that era that its not worth it?

              I know you're acting in bad faith, but I'll try once again: the modern world has decided that homosexuality is no longer a mental illness, so it no longer is. Because nobody cares anymore. (That is: nobody meaningful)

              Being an antisocial troll who spends considerable time shitposting on a cambodian yoghurt enthousiast forum in the hopes for parasocial interaction in the form of (You)s, however, would be considered a mental illness. If people actually cared about it.

        Male homosexuality is a by-product of genes that enable women to be more fertile. When those genes get passed to males, they do nothing but make them more estrogenic and gay. Male homosexuals can be safely removed from society since they do not serve a use.

        Most reasonable take. Plato in his later years turned on it and along with Xenophon led a line of Laconophile Athenians who loathed male on male relations and democracy. But there were also plenty of philosophers who supported it, Socrates being the best example and probably early Platoas a result. Besides, acceptable relationships were basically just getting jacked off my hand or thighs, penetrative sex, while it did occur, was scandalous.

        And no, opposition did not actually exist.

        >Plato
        He wrote an entire book (The Symposium) about the virtues of having sex with young boys. It's seriously his second most well known book. How the fuck do you people not know about this?
        >Xenophon
        In the Anabasis he mentions his own lust towards young boys he spots on his march back. Along with other references
        >Alexander
        Countless sources recount his sexual relations with a male prostitute called Baogos. In his harem it's specifically mentioned that it contained men as well.
        >Arisophanes
        Never criticised homosexuality, just lightly mocked passives.
        >Aeschines
        He was talking about prostitution, this has nothing to do with homosexuality. It the whole source he makes it very clear.

        The image was made by someone who did research and knew full well the truth, yet decided to intentionally spread misinformation for his own agenda and counted on historically illiterate 4chantards to keep promoting it.

            Even so, it was far, far from the mainstream of Greek opinion. The Republic was one of the most radical books ever written and promoted ideas that were in complete contradiction to established Greek customs and morals.
            His supposed support for banning homosexuality just proves that it was widespread custom, just like how Plato also supported abolishing the family and polytheism, and supported gender equality.
            It's also really more of a thought experiment than anything else.

              There's no positive source for homosexuality in Greece. His thought experiment was about the optimization of man which included the elimination of all vice such as sodomy. The average view of homosexuality in ancient greece was negative, old men who lusted after younger boys were considered perverts and there's plenty a joke from plays out having to chase old creepy men out of gymnasiums populated by younger men.

                The cultures have changed so much that there are no similarities between you and your ancestors, there is also no oral knowledge passed down and everything you know is transmitted from historians, so you know only as much about ancient Greece as any other non-Greek.
