Plato with Glaucon for prayers
The message talks about how Plato went to a festival together with Glaucon for prayers (Plato Republic Book 1)
The passage is amazing because it brings another feature of Plato. The passage illustrates how Plato is a prayerful warrior, spiritual and religious. In addition, he likes to socialize with people because he did not go alone to the festival, but he chooses to go with Glaucon, who is the son of Ariston. Furthermore, he is a respected person because Polemarchus sent his servants to request him to way for him to catch up when they were leaving.
It talks about how injustice occurs through nature and how the legal system was introduced to justify whether the injustices carried out are intentional or unintentional. (Plato Republic Book II).
The passage is convincing, but it is demoralizing. The writer tries to disclose that a person can do another person’s injustice with an excuse it happened by mistakes. Many people suffer from such errors, but through the introduction of the law, the legal person such as lawyers and judges can identify whether various injustices are intentional or unintentional from their analysis, the sentence depending on the evidence given.
The passages disclose that there are people who have the power to lie to others given their leadership position in the government. It also denotes that common people are like slaves to such leaders and if found cheating, they become a learning lesson for others” (Plato, Republic Book III).
The passage symbolizes what happens in political life. The politicians and government officials are always in the front line to offer promises that they know they cannot deliver to lure them into supporting various agendas they want to pass. The passage also illustrates how government officials escort free after stealing from the public billions of money. Still, when ordinary citizens steal a chicken, they are jailed in maximum security prisons for life.
The passages use wives to symbolize democracy and explain how it has both positive and negative impacts on the people (Aristotle, A Treatise on Government Book II).
The passage talks about democracy. In a democratic state, people’s probability of having a different opinion over a plan is high. Different ideas bring difficulties, but since they want the best for the city, they will have to agree and do what is right for society.
Does the passage talk about the right to question a government? (Aristotle, a Treatise on Government Book III).
The passage talks about democracy. Democracy means that the government belongs to the people, by the people, and for the people. Since the government belongs to the people, they have the right to ask questions such as “what a city?” the reason for asking such a question is to question the government’s accountability and transparency. In addition, when people pay taxes, the people or the citizens become government officials’ employers. It means that they have the veto power to question why the city is like it is and what needs to be done to sustain its current status or improve.
The passage talks about how rules and regulations are made and how they help shape governments through their actions ((Aristotle, a Treatise on Government Book IV).
The passage talks about legislation meaning that government cannot run without rules and regulations. Thus, policies are made that help give the government a road map that should be followed. In a democratic nation or State, many people will engage in a conflict of interest because of agenda differences that directly connect with the government. Solving such disputes requires rules and regulations that help define measures to be taken to find a solution. In such a context, the rule of law must be employed regardless of the person pushing for a specific agenda or against such a plan.
