Socrates hated democracy because people harmed themselves and others.
He believed in the idea of living a good life first and let society decide as they go.
In fact, all forms of society are at risk to have harm done within itself..
Why bother? Why did practicing Stoics go to such great lengths to prevent harm and pursue self control?
The actions of men and women throughout history show a great desire to practice an abstained approach to all desire in the hope to pursue a purpose of better life.
But with judgement, speculation and a lack of understanding there are many mistakes made about this topic.
The purpose of living a good life is self control and all virtue leads to a better person and society, but the practice is more important than displaying the facts.
