Fantastic summary of Platos republic here:

– You will agree that the whole is greater than the part.

– Yes, O Socrates.

– But earlier we showed that the part was greater than the whole.

– Indeed you did, O Socrates.

– Therefore the Philosophers should rule in the City.

– How could anything else be the case, O Socrates?
