12. He considered himself an educated gentleman

Levick blamed this "astonishing depravity" on "hooligan males" and wrote down his observations in Greek so that only an educated gentleman would understand the horrors he had witnessed.


He classified the behavior as that of hooligans. It really doesn't make sense that he believed only educated gentlemen would understand the "horrors". Wouldn't the people he considered hooligans be more capable to comprehend such behaviors?

This is allowing for his obvious tendency to anthropomorphize animal behavior, I am not astonished by his obvious elitism, but I am, as always, appalled that it would come from a man of science.
