Thrasymachusí view is that of a perfectly unjust life. After discussion Socrates refutes this idea. The three statements made accompany in life and the world around us, what is seen as everyday life is explained by Thrasymachusí aspect of justice. Someone would definitely have to benefit from another in a good or bad way. There would be no order if it were not. Justice is accounted as a simple plan to keep everyone in about the same position in society. If it was not the way he explained everyone would likely stand and rebel against anything they would believe was unfair. Everyone would have a different view of what is right, so there would be nothing to follow. All human would try to outdo all others around them, which can be contrasted as looking for a job. Thrasymachus even if challenged by Socrates, he would not completely drop his idea. There can be no justice without injustice, who would know what is just? Justice would be used as a convenience, you would be just to those that can benefit you to reach what you desire, once you are in the position you desire to stay in the same position you would definitely have to be unjust. If justice were justice everyone would eventually be their own boss. Everyone would feel something is owed to them; many would be at odds with one another. No man can ever be completely happy in his life to be happy he would have to unjust in one occasion or another. You canít have one without the other.
