Aristotle In One Take
None of the attributes of happiness is incomplete, and as one swallow does not make a summer nor does one day; and so one day or a small amount of time cannot make a person good and happy. Thus it is not only to seize the day. We plan to seize them all.
We could only believe that banks are printing money if we could believe also that they can print work. There must be an activity, work, before there can be a representation of that activity, demand.
It clearly is best that property should be private as opposed to a thing of the public, a Republic, as Plato claims, where all property is common. This error of Socrates which he repeats must be attributed to the false supposition from which it begins; that it is best for the state to be as strongly unified as possible and so he claims it is the responsibility of the legislators to make the entire state happy.

Aristotle's Politics is the origin of how to form a Perfect Union, Ethics is the origin of The Pursuit of Happiness, and First Philosophy is the origin of the First Principle of All. Each of these demonstrates how Plato is wrong on politics, ethics, and nature.
"As for the Ideas, over which he upbraids Plato, Aristotle attacks them everywhere and introduces all the puzzles about them--in his ethical works, in his [metaphysics], in his exoteric dialogues: to some he seemed more ambitious than philosophical [about] these doctrines, as though proposing to subvert Plato's philosophy; so far was Aristotle from following Plato." - Plutarch
