Interesting article. However in the news lately there has been a a lot of complaints about people who were voicing an opinion not fact or misinformation just an opinion and they were banned from that unnamed social media Outlet. So Plato being The Thinker that he was would have probably had a hard time staying on certain social media Outlets. I do miss the days of a good open minded debate on issues. People don't seem to have discussions much anymore it normally ends up if you don't believe the way they do or they don't believe the way you do arguments ensue and everyone walks away believing they are right. And the end result of that is always nothing happens nothing gets done nothing changes.

Good magic to all,
