In political theory, liberalism encompasses two traditional elements: freedom and equality. Most contemporary theories of justice emphasize the concept of equality, including Rawls` theory of justice as equity. For Ronald Dworkin, a complex concept of equality is sovereign political virtue. [28] Dworkin raises the question of whether society has a duty of justice to help those responsible who need help. Complications arise in the distinction between electoral and random issues, as well as in justice for future generations in the redistribution of resources, which he advocates. [29] One of the reasons Krmit has progressed is mainly based on what he expects from people if Socrates remains in prison and is killed. They will say that his friend Crito could have saved him if he had been willing to provide the money to buy his freedom. Such accusations could only add to the grief that Crito would have already felt in the loss of a friend who could never be replaced. Crito said that he would like to give all the money he has if it could ensure Socrates` freedom, and if that turns out not to be enough, he knows several friends who would also contribute everything necessary to achieve this goal.

But there are also other reasons why Kräus believes that Socrates should escape. The court that convicted him was not a competent court. Their understanding was not sufficient to determine whether Socrates was really a youth troublemaker. Their judgment was incorrect, and therefore Socrates is not obliged to aim for him to be executed. Again, Crito claims that it is right and proper to return evil for evil. Because Socrates was treated badly, it will only be a matter of justice for him to treat the state in the same way. To further support his position, Crito points out that by refusing to escape from prison, Socrates will inflict great hardship on his own family members. It has no right to give children to the world and then not to give them the education and education to which they are entitled. Finally, Krto mentions that if Socrates leaves Athens and goes into exile, there is a good chance that he will be well received.

Crito has friends in Thessole, and Socrates could live among them in peace, without fear that the inhabitants of this place would ever cause him problems. If Socrates hesitates to escape because he fears that such an action will cause trouble for his friends, Crito reminds him that he does not have to be so afraid, because with a small amount of money, which his friends would like to contribute, they could buy the informants who would inform the authorities of his escape. For proponents of the theory that justice is part of natural law (e.B John Locke), justice involves human nature. [3] The law raises important and complex issues about equality, fairness and justice. .
