Great read

A little everyday gets the job done!
I have a new outlook on life and a new foundation after reading this book. Especially reading the last book and the afterlife experience. Go Jesus!

The New Republic

Plato knew much of man and his civilizations and shared much of it in his Republic. He described human life as seen from a cave by individuals who were chained so as to perceive the world as shadows cast by a fire from behind them. He maintained that this is the illusion of life perceived by most. However, he goes on to explain that all we perceive is the reflected glory of an ideal. By living philosophically and striving above all for justice and good, we can have true reality revealed to us.

His understanding of human nature was remarkable. His ideas linking each individual to his birth culture and state are a path to creating a new world order. Today, we are well-advised to consider the challenges we best face up to while there is still time. I see no political party, nation state or movement that has more good ideas than bad, even self-destructive. We could not do better than read and study Plato's Republic, update it to address our present circumstances and build ourselves a New Republic.
