* Didn't expect to see it here, huh? Well, in Book 2, Glaucon uses the story of Gyges's ring to make a point. He explains to Socrates that the [[RingOfPower ring]] would allow its user to turn [[InvisibilityCloak invisible]] [[Literature/LordOfTheRings (a rather familiar concept)]]. The user, independent of whether they are just or unjust, would inevitably abuse its power. They would steal from, [[SurprisinglySuddenDeath kill]], or ''RAPE'' whomever they wished.
