Plato Lays Into Obama Administration

Or he would if here to witness this debacle...

The price of apathy in public affairs is to be ruled by evil men
Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men
Whatever deceives men seems to produce a magical enchantment
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly,
while bad people will find a way around the laws
Only the dead have seen the end of war
Justice means minding one's own business and
not meddling with other men's concerns
Ignorance, the root and stem of all evil
The measure of a man is what he does with power
This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs;
when he first appears he is a protector
He who is not a good servant will not be a good master
Your silence gives consent
 He was a wise man who invented beer...
