Quotes: Plato

The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.-Plato

But should we be ruled at all? I'm certainly not "apathetic", but it doesn't matter. In our "democracy" we will be given a "choice" this November between candidates of the two wings of the same ruling plutocratic party.

Of course, Plato's views on the state and rulers, democracy vs. tyrants, etc, are subjects for interesting discussions on their own.
