One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.


" One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. "

One thing Plato understands, is politicians are not very productive. If you choose not to participate in politics you end up being governed by individuals who lie, cheat, and take advantage of tax payers. Politicians usually convince people to permit them to pass programs in order to make benefit or money. Government can never do anything right. Government runs many failing businesses. They do not let them go bankrupt, they just put more money into something that fails. You can not just put more money into something and expect it to get better. So in a way government controls the environment we live in while slowing down the evolution of technology, and education. If you aren't involved in politics you are governed by the inferior. You can see even when Plato was around government was very alike to today's standards.
