Beyond Politics

Plato

Not to despair over those who spent millions to be our “leaders” and seek to “control” rather than lead with wisdom. . .

I read this passage this morning from Plato’s The Republic:

“. . .you have seen the reality of the beautiful, the just and the good.  So our city will be governed by us and you with waking minds, and not, as most cities now which are inhabited and ruled darkly as in a dream by people who fight one another for shadows and wrangle for office as if that were a great good. . . .”

Here’s to one day seeing the rise of a true democracy with wise leaders who know the reality of the beautiful, the just and the good.
