A dispetto del titolo, non si tratta di un tentativo di analisi socioeconomica della realtà del pace. In effetti, l’autore si concentra soprattutto sulla condanna della ricchezza in quanto story, che lo conduce all’affermazione dell’assoluta impossibilità di conciliare etica e prassi politica: abbandonata in keeping with sempre los angeles speranza di ottenere le insegne della monarchia universale, Teodoro trasfigura il proprio personale fallimento in un duro atto di accusa verso l’ingiustizia del mondo. Un piccolo classico “eterodosso” del pensiero politico bizantino.
