sure thing, bud.
given that you can't recognize fake arguements when you read them, i can personally advise you to read 'open society and its enemies' by karl popper for a critical assesment of plato's political leanings and abudant usage of phalacies, and 'genealogy of morality' by friedrich nietzsche (he was a bit of a clown too but his critique of plato was spot on) for an assesment of plato's morals. they might help you out.
This is getting well off-topic, but fine.
First of all, I am not some kind of strict Platonist that wishes to defend any and all Platonic doctrines.
He is a brilliant philosopher who has undeniably contributed much to Western thought. There is much to be gained from engaging with Plato, even if we thoroughly reject his overall ontological and/or ethical vision of things.
As for Nietzsche's Genealogy
, I've read it and thoroughly enjoyed it, and I appreciate Nietzsche's candor and occasionally brilliant insights. However, needless to say, many of his criticisms fail to hit the mark. He tends to be far more interested in retelling the history of philosophy (and humanity) as a colorful narrative that he can then comment on and critique, rather than engage with the subjects of his critique on their own terms
. By and large, his attacks are directed at his own "straw man" versions of Socrates, Christianity, etc.
(But why am I even bothering replying to your useless name-dropping of material that you haven't even read?)
then again, i know you're a fundamentalist Christian so im not sure if those books aren't forbidden for you.
Awwwww snap, dawg, I just got BURNED!
P.S. I recognize that you are simply repeating the Magician's epithet "fundamentalist," and it certainly does have that lovely backwoods vibe to it, but I am not, in any strict sense, a "fundamentalist" or part of a "fundamentalist group." "Evangelical" would be a much more accurate term (not that his primary concern or yours was ever accuracy
