    One should read Homer and Thucydides before Plato, and Aristophanes after Plato to get the contrary view. I side with Aristophanes against Plato.

    I change my mind- the goal is to produce someone who would otherwise enter ἀριστοκρατία as defined in the eighth book of Plato's Republic- & the emphasis would be predominantly on the reading of aforementioned in Attic. The rest I would leave up to him to do as he wishes- Of course the reality of 21st century Occidental civilisation is such that we are in the penultimate stage of retardation- Καλλίπολις does not exist & so I will be preparing him for nothing but hardship in a world of meaningless mercantile interactions.

    I have had enough of internet undercaste/outcaste philistines on various servers who worship currency so I am going to retreat from those websites for some time.

    It would seem the reality of politics has been paralysed upon a path of Liberalism since the introduction of American foreign policy in France by Woodrow Wilson. Isn't this the general view espoused by Francis Fukuyama which was borrowed from Hegel & Marx but altered? If it truly is the case then the thought of having a child who would otherwise be a member of ἀριστοκρατία honestly fills me with anxiety.
