The best of these the men of the former generation will appoint to be their successors. Nevertheless, unworthy as they are, when they in turn enter into their fathers' power, they will in the first place begin to neglect its, when they are guardians, unduly disparaging, first of all, music, and then gymnastic ; and hence your young men will come to be forgetful of the Muses. Now in consequence of all this the rulers will not prove very eager for the task of assaying the metal of your different races, which are the same as Hesiod's,(11) the golden, the silver, the brass, and the iron. And when silver has been alloyed with iron, and gold with brass, inequality will result, and discordant irregularity; and, if this condition prevails, wherever it is found, it always generates hatred and war. Such, we must say, is the origin-of sedition, wherever from time to time it Arises.' "(12)
