Plato's Ancient 'Democracy' does not apply in the third world with authoritarian laws- we all know that pretty well, people only try on perpetual effort...

        

Plato: The Failure of Democracy

Historians like to quote A. N. Whitehead who said:

"The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato."

If you want to talk about democracy; the rule of law is to accept those that you might hate and be able to criticize them without creating a war to reverse opposed and conflicting thoughts...

Roger Scruton will have a very hard time to find anyone in the Middle East thinking along his peaceful train of thought.

We do know that most of the citizens go by emotional and choleric outburst, revengeful mentality and act to these condition with crushing and violent deeds.

Roger Scruton also gave us a preview what will happen, what we see now, but did anyone listen? 

           disappointed

That Brit makes sense, but who's listening here?

Thanks  - I was looking for a good author to listen too and get to read a  good book about human behaviour!
