They dont find ruling attractive for the sake of ruling The good man is not a selfless idealist They dont find the usual wages of ruling attractive either Good men are largely indifferent to the things that thrasymechus presented Only in one case would they rule: when there is no one better to do the job Good men will rule to avoid the evil of being ruled by inferior men The injustice is superior to justice The just man is a high minded simpleton according to thrsymechus This is refuted by a few of Socrate
