Yes. After all, he was a heretic, was he not?

  I have never understood why anyone ever took Plato seriously.

  What do you think about Plato? 

  He was brilliant, no doubt, popular too, a/b Socrates would've never wrote 
  a book like The Republic, with all its social engineering; and those were 
  important matters at that time, that continues to be my opinion. 

  On one hand, I think he was/is really brilliant a/b on the other hand, I 
  realize that he's speaking, supposedly, for someone else. He said; he said; 
  he said.... And, in addition to that, I have a problem with a man who 
  besmearches another man's wife, because, well, you know and supposedly, that's 
  what he would've said. Sometimes things like that have real motives; 
  certainly, they're sensational. 

  I'm a big fan of Socrates. He's dear to my heart, I love that guy who, 
  basically, was kill for his stance - how am I to believe that's the very same 
  stance, or point of view, that got Plato massages into his 80s, and a 
  living _name in Philosophy.

  Dunno, a/b brilliant or not I continue to have some serious reservations 
  about the way Plato' work adds up; that's just how I feel.
