Topic: Plato's RepublicChanging Ethics: Plato to Today
How does "modern ethics" differ from "traditional ethics", and why has ethics changed so much over the years?
When do we notice that our way of ethics begin to change? Where is this threshold, and who aided in this progression of ethics? Is there really a recognizable difference between "traditional ethics" and "modern ethics"?

I think people now prefer for the government to stay out of their activities. They seem to think that the government is acting unethically if it tells them what to do. This is the opposite of what Plato suggests. He thinks the government should be involved.
