The wise words of Plato.

These two quotes from Plato shows he knew the main stumbling block to political reform is ...US!

“One of the penalties for not taking part in politics is you end up being governed by your inferiors”

“If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools”

The challenge is how to get the people to wake up and engage with our six demands?

However at least we exist which is a start.


  1. "Government" is usually used to mean state government. But it may be that civilisation starts with self-government. There has to be an element of trust in any community otherwise power has to come from the barrel of a gun. Changing the system may not achieve much without changing the people.

  2. I'll stick to making the people sovereign and changing our system of governance which I'm sure, if we ever get there, will be an improvement on what we have now.
