Plato's Contribution To Democracy

Plat believed everyone of us was born with some kind of gift. He stated that wealth, gender, and birthright should not be a factor that could decide your role in life. Plato believed that if you were brave and strong you must become a soldier. People that were born skillful with their hands should be artisans and the wisest should be leaders. He also didn't believe in an autocracy because he said the ruler would be to tempted and would make unwise decisions because the ruler would become over powered by ambition. He also didn't believe in a government ruled by the people because people were ignorant and unwise.
