Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can readily believe that Plato was an anti-democrat, that was already my opinion from what I had read. To me the question also involves a distinction between who Socrates was and how Plato portrayed him. Aristotle was obviously a servant of power, but not just that.
