Ath. That when there has been a contest for power, ugg boots clearance those who gainthe upper hand so entirely monopolize the government, as to refuse allshare to the defeated party and their descendants-they live watchingone another, the ruling class being in perpetual fear that some onewho has a recollection of former wrongs will come into power andrise up against them. Now, according to our view, such governments arenot polities at all, nor are laws right which are passed for thegood of particular classes and not for the good of the whole state.States which have such laws are not polities but parties, and theirnotions of justice are simply unmeaning. I say this, because I amgoing to assert that we must not entrust UGGS Clearance the government in yourstate to any one because he is rich, or because he possesses any otheradvantage, such as strength, or stature, or again birth: but he who ismost obedient to the laws of the state, he shall win the palm; andto him who is victorious in the first degree shall be given thehighest office and chief ministry of the gods; and the second to himwho bears the second palm; and on a similar principle shall all theother be assigned to those who come next in order. And when I call therulers servants or ministers of the law, I give them this name not forthe sake of novelty, but Kids UGGS On Sale because I certainly believe that upon suchservice or ministry depends the well- or ill-being of the state. Forthat state in which the law is subject and has no authority, Iperceive to be on the highway to ruin; but I see that the state inwhich the law is above the rulers, and the rulers are the inferiors ofthe law, has salvation, and every blessing which the Gods can confer.
Cle. Truly, Stranger, you see with the keen vision of age.
Ath. Why, yes; every man when he is young has that sort of visiondullest, and when he is old keenest.
Cle. Very true.
Ath. And now, what is to be the next step? May UGGS Clearance we not suppose thecolonists to have arrived, and proceed to make our speech to them?
Ath. "Friends," we say to them,-"God, as the old tradition declares,holding in his hand the beginning, middle, and end of all that is,travels according to his nature in a straight line towards theaccomplishment of his end. Justice always accompanies him, and isthe punisher of those who fall short of the divine law. To justice, hewho would be happy holds fast, and follows in her company with allhumility and order; but he who is lifted up with pride, or elated bywealth or rank, or beauty, who is young and foolish, and has a soulhot with uggs clearance insolence, and thinks that he has no need of any guide orruler, but is able himself to be the guide of others, he, I say, isleft deserted of God; and being thus deserted, he takes to himothers who are like himself, and dances about, throwing all thingsinto confusion, and many think that he is a great man, but in ashort time he pays a penalty which justice cannot but approve, andis utterly destroyed, and his family and city with him. Wherefore,seeing that human things are thus ordered, what should a wise man door think, or not do or think?
