Plato - The Republic

"It's important that you all understand that Western society is based on the fallacy-ridden ramblings of a retarded person. Read this, understand that he is not joking, and understand that Plato is retarded."


"Recommends it for: people who don't want to learn things about the human condition and that modernity is poison.
Recommended to ________ by: My idiot Intro to Philosophy professor who was sexist and old.

No state is a good state.

Fxxx your oppressive hierarchical dualistic obsession with the success and value of the Philosophical classics. Innate ideas? No way, Plato.


Go grab some Sartre.
Or a primer on how to build REAL community by coming to consensus on what's 'fair' and 'just' instead of just forcing those ideals on the masses. Masses that the founders of this republic get to control and keep stupid.

Republic is just an outdated term for society, and society is poison. This book defends the workings of modern Western Civilization, and if that's your cup of tea we're probably not friends."


"It is also hard to tell exactly what they mean, since some key words have changed meaning since Plato's time."


"I had to read this three times for school, and each one blew my asshole a little more... and not in the good way (RIMJOB!)."


"plato was a fascist and crazy-opportunist and its good he died before modern government was created, so that no one could base the building blocks of their system on."


"This essential work of philosophy suffers from its antiquity. Long stretches of Plato's famous dialog make the point over and over, too much for today's readers. Though repetition may have been useful in ancient times, it's through modern lenses that I read. Any editor today would have chopped fifty pages off this treatise in an eye blink."


"Basically this is a bunch of dudes talking about some shit they think. The Republic is the equivalent of me making a book about all the stupid shit kids have said in my basement."

ONE TIME THESE KIDS IN MY BASEMENT WERE TALKING ABOUT BREAKING FREE OF THEIR CHAINS AND ESCAPING TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD TOO. JUST LIKE IN THE ALLEGORY OF THE CAVE


"I know Plato is important for politics and all that crap, but vomit."


"That cave thing was kind of cool, but it doesn't really seem to reflect my own experiences; I don't think he really did much research into caves before writing this thing."


"'ideas need expanding' ha, like those teachers use to tell me... now i tell him.. ha"


"In this work of Plato, the author greatly strives to define justice. He tries to put forth what would be a perfect society. The problem with Plato is that he left Jehovah, the true God, out of his philosophy. Jehovah is the center of everything, and without Him, there is no truth. Since Plato rejected belief in the true God, and whole, intact truth is only found in that true God, Plato's philosophy is understandably flawed. Of course, as THE REPUBLIC is a popularly recongnized classic, one may find it useful to read it, in order to understand the viewpoint of the masses who accept it, provided one compares it with the truth of God's word, the Bible."
