  • Republic

    A cooper and barrel maker who became a practicing attorney like Abraham Lincoln and a Judge in 1779. He was officially elected President of the congress and served actively on the position on March 1, 1781. He didn’t get credit while transforming the thirteen sovereign colonies into the Republic of America.

    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.

    This book is a timeless classic, all people in the world should read it. We would have more righteous people in the world, if they read this book.
  • 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.
