All meetings might be somewhat of a miracle

From Baccano!

During the early 1930s in Chicago, the transcontinental train, Flying Pussyfoot, is starting its legendary journey that will leave a trail of blood all over the country. At the same time in New York, the ambitious scientist Szilard and his unwilling aide Ennis, are looking for missing bottles of the immortality elixir. In addition, a war between the mafia groups is getting worse. On board the Advena Avis, in 1711, alchemists are about to learn the price of immortality.

Based on the award winning light novels of the same name, this anime adaptation follows several events that initially seem unrelated, both in time and place, but are part of a much bigger story—one of alchemy, survival and immortality. Merging these events together are the kindhearted would-be thieves, Isaac and Miria, connecting various people, all of them with their own hidden ambitions and agendas, and creating lifelong bonds and consequences for everyone involved.

Look who I came across in a Japanese video lesson

The Legend of Galactic Heroes

The Legend of Galactic Heroes (Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu) is a series of science fiction novels written by Yoshiki Tanaka, and adapted to a classic anime series produced by Kitty Films and animated for the most part by Artland and Magic Bus, running from 1988 to 2000.

In humanity's distant future, two interstellar states - the monarchic Galactic Empire and the democratic Free Planets Alliance - are embroiled in a never-ending war. The story focuses on the exploits of rivals Reinhard von Müsel and Yang Wen Li as they rise to power and fame in the Galactic Empire and the Free Planets Alliance. None of this content has been officially released in the English language. However, fan translations of the anime to English are available. A new anime is in production right now too.

"It's politicians who toy with power. It's opportunistic soldiers like in Amlitzer. No, it's citizens who have turned over rulership to politicians instead of participating in it. The people have democratic principles on their lips but can't spare the effort to safeguard it. The collapse of the government is the sin of its rulers and leaders. The collapse of democracy is the sin of every citizen." 
Admiral Alexander Bucock (episode 53)

This is the truth. Exchange alliance for western civilization, Amlitzer for the war on terror, and there you have it: Our reality.

Another quote from the next episode of a meeting of two great characters in this series whose names will be ommitted to not spoil anything:

"I only offer a counterpoint to your ideology. I believe that an ideology, seen from another side, must give rise to a counter-ideology. I merely point out that such a counterpoint must exist."
"So no ideology is supreme and no ideology stands alone? Is that your conviction?"
"No, that's just what I was thinking, I wouldn't call it a conviction."

And a clip (minor spoilers) how government works

A reminder to myself

I couldn't open the way to replenish the fuel of my chariot 
because I didn't use the key I had all along

Did you know the Trojan Horse could have been symbolism for an Earthquake?
As Poseidon was the God of the Sea, Earthquakes and Horses.

His main domain is the ocean, and he is called the "God of the Sea". Additionally, he is referred to as "Earth-Shaker" due to his role in causing earthquakes, and has been called the "tamer of horses".

Some mythologists theorize that the story of the Trojan Horse was symbolism for an Earthquake
which weakened the city and allowed the army to overtake it.

The Chariot that broke down the self-built Walls of the City
and let my enemies/friends back in
to destroy the old me

The Walls I/Poseidon built myself, with a little help of my friends...

The walls of Troy

Poseidon and Apollo, having offended Zeus by their rebellion in Hera's scheme, were temporarily stripped of their divine authority and sent to serve King Laomedon of Troy. He had them build huge walls around the city and promised to reward them well, a promise he then refused to fulfill. In vengeance, before the Trojan War, Poseidon sent a sea monster to attack Troy. The monster was later killed by Heracles.

Don't build walls, there is no reward.

I know I came here to lose myself, but I really keep taking it too far, too often

A wise man once said...

"You see what we did
we lost the love
I'm talking 'bout the love

I have given it much thought
It seems, 
disaster must come

At best,
only postponed
Shaolin Kung-Fu to survive
must now be taught to more young men
We must expand,
get more pupils

So that the knowledge will spread."
