The philosopher's role in his society grants him no power. Plato thinks that philosopher's should have the highest power. He says that a political power and philosophy go hand-in-hand, philosophers are reasonable and educated. I feel that Socrates and Plato would be against the idea of having a democracy. They are aware of some of the downfalls of this kind of society, and feel that a democracy would eventually lead to injustice dishonest men leading.
