A spiritual kinship that I too share, I guess.
@mplouffe But Plato wouldn't have survived long in the age of social media and Twitter scapegoating, I can tell you that...
@mplouffe That's a shame, since Plato in other respects is absolutely brilliant and lives up to his reputation.
@mplouffe Figuratively, he seems to have believed that. And being one of the few who had been outside the cave and seen the sun and the true world. So we ordinary people are perhaps too dumb to see the benefit of a censored totalitarian state with a brain-washed population fed lies from birth.
Plato comes across as a jaundiced moralist.
@migueltorrescosta I'm considering a university programme to become a teacher of psychology. It's 3 semesters, a year and a half. And you can survive on a special benefit during that period (government subventions because the shortage of qualified teachers). In that case, I'd be a qualified teacher by the beginning of 2023.
