United States Politics and Social Justice are forms that a mythology assumes in a culture. The former has lost sight of its earlier sustaining mythos: an image of Paradise. It has also become unconscious of the earlier writings of Plato and Aristotle on the nature and structure of a virtuous society ruled by leaders of wisdom. By revisioning earlier epistemologies outlined by the ancient Greek philosophers, politics and social justice movements can reclaim their origins. The conclusion outlines a series of 13 differentiations between US. politics and the currents of social justice. For men are easily spoilt; not everyone can bear prosperity .... Especially should the laws provide against anyone having too much power derived from friends or from money; if he has, he and his followers should be sent out of the country (Aristotle, Politics, n.d Book V, chapter 8, p. 361).
