Republic

AZL flag holder TransparentThe concept of ‘Republic’ as defined by classical Greek philosophers such as Plato place great emphasis on the importance of civic virtue (aiming for the good of the whole city) together with personal virtue (‘just man’). The theory is closely related to the Nationalist state in which society functions properly and successfully only as a living organism. All parts benefit when each part performs the function for which it is best suited. Should one part fail to perform its own function, usurp or interfere with the function of another part, or like a cancer devour all the nourishment and grow wildly and selfishly out of all proportion to its task, it will render devastation on all. A unified, single-purposed whole is capable of out-performing any single part. This vastly increases the powers of all the cooperating parts. However, the parts must subordinate a portion of their individual freedom to the whole for if the whole is destroyed all of the constituent parts will suffer. Plato asserts such in his famous Republic. Rome developed its legislation, notably the transition from a kingdom to a republic, by following the example of the Greeks. Unfortunately in modernity the term ‘Republic’ has been violated by a notion of ‘egalitarian election’ conceived by Jewish democracy.
