A PRINCE OF NEUROTICS : AELIUS ARISTIDES

governors dispatched to cities and peoples each control those under their charge, but, in their own persons and in their relations to each other, are all alike controlled. They differ from their subjects, in being themselves the first to show how to submit to government. Such fear of the Great Governor and Universal President has been instilled into all. They think that he knows what they are doing better than they know it themselves, and they feel more fear and respect for him than a man feels if his master is present, standing over him and giving him orders. If they have some small doubt about a case or claim of an individual or a community in their province, they send to the emperor at once and ask what they shall do, and wait till he signifies his will, like a choir with its trainer. He need not wear himself out travelling round his empire ; he need not go from place to place, and settle the affairs of each by setting foot on its soil. He can sit in comfort at home and guide the world by letters, which reach their destination almost as soon as they are written, as though birds carried them.
Is not this better than any democracy ? There when the people has once given its vote, you cannot go elsewhere or to a further tribunal, but must accept the decision. But here there is another great court of appeal, which no point of justice ever escapes. Here is a great and proper equality between the small and the great, between the obscure and the illustrious, between the poor and the rich and well-born. Hesiod's saying is realized ; for this prince and judge
Easily makes men powerful and easily crushes power,
following the guidance of righteousness which, like a breeze on shipboard, does not favour or further the rich more and the poor less, but helps equally those who have justice on their side.
The following extract is from a funeral address on a famous teacher, addressed to the people of Cotyaeum, in Phrygia. It is a portrait of an ancient scholar and schoolmaster. But the traits are curiously modern. It touches on the weaknesses
