Justice/ThrasymachosVsSkorates: (Plato, Republic):
Thrasymachos attacks Socrates's conversation. Playful modesty, is supposed to deceive the conversation partner.
He also introduces arguments against opponents who had long since considered them.
Definition justice/Thrasymachus: The justice is nothing else but conducive to the strongest.
Justice/SocratesVsThrasymachos: the ruling might be deceived in what the most conducive is.
Justice/Thrasymachus: if the justly is a foreign good, it includes the injustice of those who possess it.
The just ones are the fools. The justice is everywhere worse off than the unrighteous.
Thrasymachus was the contemporary of the murderous war between Athens and Sparta.
On a small scale, injustice is an evil and is punished. On the whole, it is the hallmark of leadership.
It is conceivable that Thrasymachus was distorted by Plato as a horror image. Popper calls him a "political desperado of the worst sort". (PopperVsTrasymachus).
