If I ruled the world by plato's rules...

absolutism; A political theory holding that all power should be vested in one ruler or other authority.

The ideal city of Plato's Republic was a totalitarian society where the ignorant conceded that only the philosophers have knowledge and somehow recognize the appropriateness of the power of rule
being held in the hands of the non-ignorant.

If I were an absolutist, given the same powers that every Pope has enjoyed since Pope Pius IV, declared that his will instantly became the doctrine of the church, so would my will become the doctrin of government and thus would begin the fall of civilization...
