Well, I'm certainly not claiming to be an expert, but it seems to me that any philosopher worthy of the name should, if nothing else, at least be internally consistent in their positions.

In this ring story Plato would have us believe that we act justly only insofar as we are accountable; But in the "Republic" he posits that ultimate authority be vested in "philosopher kings" who would decide based not on their selfish interests but only out of "love for the city"

To me that seems like a pretty big contradiction
