    The Euthyphro is one of Plato’s classic dialogues. It is a well-verbalized piece which deals with the question of ethics, consisting of a conversation between Socrates and one other person who claims to be an expert in a certain field of ethics. It is additionally riddled with Socratic irony in which Socrates poses as the incognizant student hoping to learn from a supposed expert, when in fact he shows Euthyphro to be the nescient one who kens nothing about the subject being holiness. Plato's main

    “There can be no tyrants where there are no slaves.”-Jose Rizal. “Animal Farm,” written by George Orwell depicts a world of talking animals and vicious dictators, but looking further into the meaning of the book you can see that Orwell’s observation and opinion that revolutions often fail in that they end up only in a change of tyrants is very true.
