A description of the lost Atlantis was written by Plato; it introduces the league formed by the ten benevolent kings who ruled over the lesser nations and the three great continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa;
and who bound themselves by oath to obey the divine laws of enduring empire. ...
This was the philosophic democracy, with all men having the right to become wise through self-discipline and self-improvement,
thus achieving the only aristocracy recognized by Natural Law. ... The Atlantis story continues
to the later decision of the kings to use their united power to enslave all the peoples of the earth, and the consequent destruction of Atlantis by earthquake and fire ....interpreted politically, it is the story of the breaking up of the ideal pattern of government.
