The New Republic
By Stop the Rats
Plato knew much of man and his civilizations and shared much of it in his Republic. He described human life as seen from a cave by individuals who were chained so as to perceive the world as shadows cast by a fire from behind them. He maintained that this is the illusion of life perceived by most. However, he goes on to explain that all we perceive is the reflected glory of an ideal. By living philosophically and striving above all for justice and good, we can have true reality revealed to us.
His understanding of human nature was remarkable. His ideas linking each individual to his birth culture and state are a path to creating a new world order. Today, we are well-advised to consider the challenges we best face up to while there is still time. I see no political party, nation state or movement that has more good ideas than bad, even self-destructive. We could not do better than read and study Plato's Republic, update it to address our present circumstances and build ourselves a New Republic.

No doubt that Socrates and Plato had studied and believed the prophets of old. And no doubt their words, like those of Epimenides, were inspired by them. I also love how Plato foretold the rise of modern socio-economic ideologies in this.

A masterpiece of thought
“[...] but let him know how to choose the mean and avoid the extremes on either side, as far as possible, not only in this life but in all that which is to come. For this is the way of happiness.”
Excerpt From: Plato. “The Republic.” iBooks.
This incredibly lighthearted dialogue between one of Earth's most renowned figures will take you on a journey of discovery in the realm of truth and wisdom. Plato seemingly reconstructs for us the disciplined yet congenial analysis with which his teacher confronts the most important aspects of human existence.
The delicious center and icing on this scrumptious cake of profound clarity of thought, namely, the allegory of the cave and the tale of Er's near death experience, will most likely improve your way of thinking about your experience of Earth and its inhabitants.

Plato The Apology is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defended himself in 399 BC against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes. The Apology begins with Socrates saying he does not know if the men of Athens (his jury) have been persuaded by his accusers. This first sentence is crucial to the theme of the entire speech. Indeed, in the Apology Socrates will suggest that philosophy begins with a sincere admission of ignorance; he later clarifies this, dramatically stating that whatever wisdom he has, comes from his knowledge that he knows nothing.
Plato In The Laws, Plato describes in detail a comprehensive system of legislation in a small agricultural utopia he named Magnesia. His laws not only govern crime and punishment, but also form a code of conduct for all aspects of life in his ideal state - from education, sport and religion to sexual behaviour, marriage and drinking parties.
Plato The Symposium is a philosophical text by Plato dated c. 385–380 BC.  It concerns itself at one level with the genesis, purpose and nature of love, and (in latter-day interpretations) is the origin of the concept of Platonic love.
Plato What Homer was to Epic poetry, what Cicero and Demosthenes were to oratory, and what Shakespeare was to the drama of England, Plato was to ancient philosophy, not unapproachable nor unapproached, but possessing an inexplicable but unquestioned supremacy. The theme revolves around religious philosophy.
Plato The Republic is Plato's best known written work, structured as a Socratic dialogue between the great teacher, his students and other citizens of Athens. A seminal investigation into philosophy, political science, the nature of justice, government, spirituality and the role of art in society, "The Republic" remains hugely influential.
Plato The Crito seems intended to exhibit the character of Socrates in one light only, not as the philosopher, fulfilling a divine mission and trusting in the will of heaven, but simply as the good citizen, who having been unjustly condemned is willing to give up his life in obedience to the laws of the state .
Plato Cobb's introduction contains a detailed summary of the entire dialogue, clarifying the main themes and the general structure. He offers a fresh interpretation of the dialogue that shows how each theme contributes to the exploration of the nature of, and the relation between, philosophy and sophistry.
Plato Euthyphro is one of Plato's early dialogues, dated to after 399 BC. Taking place during the weeks leading up to Socrates' trial, the dialogue features Socrates and Euthyphro,  a religious expert also mentioned at Cratylus 396a and 396d, attempting to define piety or holiness.
Plato Ostensibly a discussion about love, the debate in the Phaedrus also encompasses the art of rhetoric and how it should be practised. This new edition contains an introductory essay outlining the argument of the dialogue as a whole and Plato's arguments about rhetoric and eros in particular.
