Plato's Philosophy Kings?

Inspired by Mark Twain (1835-1910)'s quote, "All kings is mostly rapscallions." The titled responsion is "Plato's Philosophy Kings?". What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

Emphasizing the point that our leaders, Kings and politicians, manipulate their surroundings to the limit that their language will allow, is less than ideal. The point here is that when our peers in positions of power take advantage of their own interests then we, rightfully, criticize the choices they make.
