WHY SOCRATES HATED DEMOCRACY, The School Of Life, 4.5 minutes

In this new miniature documentary from the fabulous School Of Life series, Socrates’ ideas about democracy are explored.  He favored”intellectual” democracies, but warned against “democracies based upon birth” which he believed could easily lead to demagoguery.

A timely video for us all.
