In this state people don’t get what they deserve, since in fact some women deserve more than some men.
Is it not true then that some men are more intelligent than others and more capable of ‘participating in the association which we call the state’? It surely must be so. Is it not then justifiedVIEW DOCUMENT

Politics is a process by which a group of people, whose opinions or interests might be divergent, reach collective decisions that are generally regarded as binding on the group and enforced as common policy.
Political theory or political philosophy is as old as the oldest civilisations. The Greek philosophers, such as Aristotle and Plato, developed important political theories and methods of government alongside their more abstract philosophies. One may contest that every society and every belief we hold is a reflection of the political system we live under. Politics, in it absolute form, is a concept of society that definitely intrudesVIEW DOCUMENT
