If you had the Ring of Gyges, would you still be just?

  • Easier said than done

    As Glaucon argued, when someone is able to avoid repercussions of their actions, he/she will behave unjustly. He used the story The Ring of Gyges to illustrate his point, but Plato contradicted it by saying Gyges was already an unjust man, and therefore succumbed to temptation. If I had the Ring of Gyges, I would do my best not to be corrupted. It would be a test of character.
