Social Science Impact Factor

 They say that to try to to injustice is, by nature, good; to suffer injustice, evil; but that the evil is bigger than the great . then when men have both done and suffered injustice and have had experience of both, not having the ability to avoid the one and acquire the opposite , they think that that they had better agree among themselves to possess neither; hence there arise laws and mutual covenants; which which is ordained by law is termed by them lawful and just. This they affirm to be the origin and nature of justice;—it may be a mean or compromise, between the simplest of all, which is to try to to injustice and not be punished, and therefore the worst of all, which is to suffer injustice without the facility of retaliation; and justice, being at a middle point between the 2 , is tolerated not as an honest , but because the lesser evil, and honoured by reason of the lack of men to try to to injustice. For no man who is worthy to be called a person would ever undergo such an agreement if he were ready to resist; he would be mad if he did. Such is that the received account, Socrates, of the character and origin of justice. In the youth of the cosmic cycle mankind lived on an immaterial plane, dancing on air during a kind of fairyland, where there was no need of food or clothing, and no personal property , family, government or laws.
