[Untitled][edit]

Please provide specific references to the original platonic source(s) 93.162.99.126 (talk) 19:14, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

The entire page apparently derives from a 2002 book on the subject, which may have (though not necessarily) made comments based on Plato's The Republic. There is, however, no citation of the actual sources. Accordingly, this cannot be relied on to be an accurate description of "Plato's five regimes." If nothing else, at the top of the page there should be a note stating that the page is not verifiable and may have been paraphrased from that particular 2002 book (if it was), and should not be relied upon because it does not have specific citations. -Embram (talk) 19:47, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Oligarchy[edit]

"Oligarchy then degenerates into democracy where freedom is the supreme good but freedom is also slavery." This certainly needs clarification. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.154.28.197 (talk) 15:47, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
