    This is great! Thank you! You could also possibly add that some people would argue that Mill is too individualistic in his outlook, and appears to favour individual freedom above all else, whereas a traditional conservative might argue that it is important that the 'dead dogma' and custom that Mill criticises actually play an important part in maintaining social cohesion. Equally, a socialist or modern liberal might argue that Mill focuses on negative freedom and personal liberty too much, and neglects the idea that an individual might also need positive freedoms, like access to a free education and healthcare, in order to fully reach their potential.
    Good points! whenever custom is mentioned I remember Mill's quote "the magical influence of custom" which sounds quite sarcastic as he criticises it

    Here's a 45 marker I did on "Political Rule" last month. It got full marks.
    Obviously, this wasn't done in timed conditions, so don't worry too much over my evidently fussy details as I really wouldn't have time to go into them in an exam - neither would anyone!
    Thank you!

    I'm hoping that won't come up as a 15 marker... I understand it and everything I just find it so difficult to write about!

    Ugh, the Simile of the Sun is a nightmare...

    I hoping they got bored of similes in the past 2 years...Although Simile of the Cave wouldn't be the most awful thing...

    Doubting my prediction skills after Unit 3 Political Philosophy flopped me a little!

    Hopefully tomorrow for plato, for the part A question a nice simile like that of the cave . I would've said they would be asking a republic related Q however AQA have flipped their pattern this year. *fingers crossed.

    For the part B of Plato it should go : political and virtue or political appearance. don't think aqa would ask the exact same set of questions from last year (well hopefully).

    Agh i really want something epistemological! Oh well can't wait to get it over and done with. Apart from the similes what could the 15 marker be seeing as they've already used the justice conversation as one?
