From the Paper:

"Since the beginning of time mankind has continued to evolve and change to suit its needs. The laws, mores and norms that mankind has put in place often have to do with history and lessons learned in the past. Some of the ways the western world functions come from modern need but often times the functions, expectations and standards stem from periods long ago. The ancient Greeks and ancient Romans created societies that many believe were extremely advanced for their time. Many of things that those societies and cultures followed are still used in modern western civilization today."
