    "based" meaning "thing I like"? well that's subjective
    "Based" meaning "Vast self-confidence in their outlook in the face of all disagreeing viewpoints and evidence"? Yes, very based.

    They were basically barbarians.

      They had laws, courts, government, and socially stratified cities. They were just extremely underwhelming cities even by ancient Greek standards, one of the opening points that Thucydides makes in the Pelopponesian War was that anyone who set eyes on the city of Sparta itself would be amazed that such a humble looking city could have exercised power on the international stage. Unlike the aristocrats of most city states who invested in public works to show off their wealth

      The Spartans were at core a very spiritually lively and holistic society. They get hatred from liberalists today because they fought against Athenians who had a pseudo democracy and therefore the blind unexamined adoration of liberalists. Also, they did not build so many monuments when compared to several peer city-states so archaeologists for that reason gravitate toward other polities.

      They were also race traitors who sold their countrymen out to foreign oligarchs just so they could LARP as invincible warriors for a few more years before a bunch of Theban homos put them down for good. Liberals don't like them but I don't know how anyone who is far right could consider them with anything approaching admiration

          I'm just repeating the words of Thucydides who was a hardcore Spartaboo who sent his son to the Spartan agoge. Their archeological record is similarly sparse, just the foundation of a rather modestly sized amphitheater. They had great success early in the classical period but eventually started to rest on their laurels

            That was Xenophon.

              You're right, my mistake, I get them mixed up because literally all written records of the Spartans were made by Athenian Spartaboos. Thucydides himself was still a big Spartaboo, considering that letting an Athenian aristocrat like him come observe the Spartan court would have been virtually inconceivable for anyone else, and that should speak to the esteem that Sparta and Thucydides held each other in

      Barbarian quite literally meant those who don't speak Greek. Spartans were part of the extremely selective group of people who weren't considered barbarians, unlike the Egyptians, Macedonians, israelites, Scythians, Phoenicians, Lydians, Romans, Iberians, Gauls, etc...

      According to every Greek writer that talked about them, their moral character was by far the most virtuous among the Greeks, quite different from the Athenians who were almost universally condemned as degenerates. Of course, mainland Greece was a hellhole (economically and culturally) compared to the Greek colonies in Southern Italy.

    Persians were more based than Spartans. They built a functioning civilization. Despite what Frank Miller claims.

      Athenians were globohomo 0.99a
      Their method of taking direct control of their league of 'allies' over the years seems to be the EU playbook

    They lost more battles than they won and purity spiralled themselves into an oligarchy where even most of the citizens (who made up 5 percent of the population) became peasant tier. Plus they raped little boys

    They get more attention than they deserve, because in the Greek micro cosmos they were the only people with a professional soldier class. They weren't anything special.

    spartans were a living fossil. since greeks were renowned for their military prowess almost a millennium before they were renowned for their art and philosophy, and since even in the time of Aristotle et al there were other, less significant greek cities operating on the same general model of permanent military camp, it can be conjectured that originally all greek cities functioned like that, extreme militarism and rule of an ethnic elite over the helots who were descended from earlier subjugated people. sparta just preserved it longer than most.
