I'd put Archimedes through to somebody like the current president of the United States ("Dubya") or maybe some religious fundamentalist. Archimedes would be so disappointed and perhaps horrified about what kind of people are hanging around in the future that he may try to use his intelligence to figure out what has gone (or will go) wrong in history and do something about it.
