Thought for the week

If Plato were alive today, it wouldn’t take long for the Daily Mail to brand "The Republic" an "evil paedo book that has no place in our schools!!!"

Really people can be bad or deeply flawed and still have good and/or interesting ideas. This is why reductive political conservatism is (hopefully) doomed. Sorry if that sounds glib but I spent the whole day at work wondering how Socrates would cope with the modern world and that was all I could come up with.
