    Read the quotation from the Greek philosopher Aristotle. [A] state which becomes progressively more and more a unity will cease to be a state at all. Plurality of numbers is natural in a state; and the further it moves away from plurality towards unity, the less of a state it becomes. Aristotle believed that the citizens of a successful state must share the same beliefs. Follow the leadership of a dictator. Hold annual elections. Allow for a diversity of opinions.

    Allow for diversity of opinions. He is making the point that people will always have different opinions, but the more they are oppressed and forced to keep them to themselves, the less the state is really a state. After a time, it stops being a free state and becomes a dictatorship.
