The helots were absolutely mentioned. It basically went like
Athens: You had basically slaves
Sparta: You had literal slaves
Athens: okay yeah
So it kinda came up even on that front :P

No wait what? The helots were literal slaves. They literally culled their population yearly, on top of being ritually humiliated and beaten viciously several times a year regardless of whether they'd done something wrong? ???
Basically everyone in ancient Greece was an arsehole. But that goes for all of history tbh.

But if someone could sponsor them and then if they did well at military training they could rise in social class so they ~weren't technically slaves~ or so the argument goes but like. Yeah. The remote possibility of social mobility out of slavery doesn't make it not slavery :P

Life is the canvas of time, with each moment adding to the splendour of colours that make our self-portrait, and each relationship complimenting a collaboration of wonderous pieces. Which colours do you use...?

Yes! You're Right! I see you're a man of culture as well. They also have "Hell will always come before you grow" Which is an equally important line just not in that song.
Also I hope those whips don't precede a naenae =_=
