Sympathy for the Devil, by the Rolling Stones
Part III. The Confused Politics of this Great American Republic
The Devil, a so-called liberal Democrat, strongly believes in Private Property, Monogamous Heterosexual Marriage, and the Traditional Family. Do conservative Republicans believe the same? Let's see the actual text of Plato's Republic to make sure.
The Republic, by Plato- in Black and White
| Abolish Private Property
||These will all have dwellings and messes in common, and no one will have any private property of that kind at all…they will mingle in union with one another.||They will not use the word ‘mine’ each of different things, but of the same: one will not drag into his own house whatever goods he can get apart from the rest; another will not drag into his own separate house a separate wife and separate children; they will not bring in private pleasures and pains of their own.|
| Abolish Heterosexual Monogamy
||As soon as the women and...men pass the age of begetting, we shall leave the men free to consort with any they will…and the women again free.||When young men prove themselves good and true in war or anywhere else, honors must be given them…particularly more generous freedom of intercourse with women.|
| Abolish Families
||No one will deny it would be the greatest good to have women in common and children in common.||These women are to be all common to all these men, no one must have a private wife of his own, and children must be common too, and the parent shall not know the child nor the child its parent.|
Is the Republican Party evil, or do those stern 'Christian Right' Fathers and Mothers need to read a little more source material on the actual politics of a 'Republic' before pushing that button for any given Republican candidate on Election Day?
