A term that applies only to Greeks. Nobody else could ever understand it cuz theyre inferior (or stupid). Filotimo involves personal pride, dignity, courage, duty, sacrifice, and logical thinking. It is courtesy among others and ones self, and your duty to show respect and demand it. Only a person with true dignity and respect can grasp this concept. If everyone in the world possesed this gift, the world would be a much better place.
Filotimo is a hard concept to grasp it requires logic.
