Life & Philosophy Politics & Society

The running contradictions in your head

A tangle or an analogy,

The justice of the individual or the institution,

The questioner or the lemming,

The power of the strongest or the hidden clout of subjects,

“We’d all be tyrants if we could,”

But we wouldn’t last very long if nature had its way,

If heaven is only a mile away,

Heaven on earth is in your heart.

Listen to In Our Time, Plato’s Republic
