Once interpreted as a revolutionary of the left, and a prophet of Socialism, he has lately been interpreted as a revolutionary of the Right and a forerunner of Fascism. In this book Plato appears as himself – a revolutionary indeed, and even an authoritarian, but a revolutionary of the pure idea of the Good, and an authoritarian of the pure reason, unattached either to the Right or the Left.

Description : I promise that I will sometime return to your world. But the times of the reappearing of the Son of Man are known only in the councils of paradise; not even the angels of heaven know when this will occur. However, you should understand, that when this gospel of the kingdom shall have been proclaimed to all the world for the salvation of all peoples, and when the fullness of the age has come to pass, the Father will send you another dispensational bestowal, or else the Son of Man will return to adjudge the age. You should be wise regarding the ripening of an age; you should be alert to discern the signs of the times. When the world has passed through the long winter of material-mindedness and you discern the coming of the spiritual springtime of a new dispensation, should you know that the summertime of a new visitation draws near. And this will be a new beginning out of which the gospel of the kingdom will go to all the world and this salvation will spread to all peoples. You must cease to think about yourself and your own personal problems while you prepare to carry the Good News of the gospel to those who sit in darkness. No longer should you be concerned with what you may obtain from the kingdom but rather be more concerned about what you can give to those who live in spiritual poverty. Liberate spiritual captives, strengthen those who are fainthearted and fear-ridden, proclaim joy to the socially downtrodden, comfort the oppressed, minister to the sick, and confirm believers in this new faith of spiritual liberty and eternal salvation. It is your faith that saves your souls. Salvation is the gift of God to all who believe they are his children.
