The Greek City-State where Plato seeks to rationalize, spiritualize, and universalize the ideal life
Plato believed was "government by the best"
Plato believed was "Government by people of honor and ambition"
Plato believed was "government by the rich and lovers of money"
Plato believed was "government by the many poor". Is based on everyone's having "an equal share of freedom and power"
Emerges when democratic people lose a sense of law and order turn to a "champion" to protect them against the rich. It is the lawless rule of one individual, is the worst form of government and receives Plato's harshest criticism.
