QUESTION: What if everyone followed Socrates?
ANSWER: That would never happen. It is like saying that everyone would vote either Democratic or Republican, or that Congress would suddenly work together. That is the way governments think because they do not comprehend how the world actually functions. They engage in propaganda and try to manipulate society. It is not possible for everyone to follow one system no matter what you do, just as government could not possibly brainwash everyone to think the same. Even if everyone did follow the same model, nothing would change since the highs would be highs and lows would be lows.
