Ancient Greeks: Plato on the Measure of a Man
The measure of a man is what he does with power.
~ Plato, The Republic
“Plato, (born c. 428/427 bce—died c. 348/347 bce), ancient Greek philosopher, student of Socrates (c. 470–399 bce), teacher of Aristotle (384–322 bce), and founder of the Academy, best known as the author of philosophical works of unparalleled influence.
Human nature has not changed over the millennia. The question is, do we learn from history?
When we have a degree of power, which protects us, do we use it to take advantage of others?
That’s one of my thoughts. Care to share what you are thinking?
