For their ancient superiority did not depend on their mode of training their youth, but only on the circumstance that they trained them when their only rivals did not. The objects of no other sense, such as taste or touch, have any resemblance to moral qualities; in visible objects there is only a little, for there are figures which are of a moral character, but only to a slight extent, and all do not participate in the feeling about them.

Aristotle also connects slavishness with wage-earning work. Assemblies of citizens made decisions in bodies whose modern equivalents are law courts and city councils, and these assemblies would rotate membership so that every citizen served a specific term. A well-mixed polity should reinforce the good parts of each regime while minimizing their shortcomings. Although the Lacedaemonians have not fallen into this mistake, yet they brutalize their children by laborious exercises which they think will make them courageous.
