In reply to comment: The article brought this to mind (see in situ)

had Dr. Paul been alive in days of yore,

he'd definitely be THE prime example of the "Philosopher King," except in his case, it'd be more like the Reluctant King, a King who despises power.

"For he who is honest is noble
Whatever his fortunes or birth."

Indeed.

That's our Doc for ya: the most noble Statesman alive, whom ironically abhors the State/the Leviathan and all it stands for. A man who solely qualifies for the non-existent oxymoron of an "honest politician," who IS honest, but is not a politician, though his occupational disposition maybe described as such.

After our Gray Champ rides into the proverbial sunset, I doubt we'll ever see another living embodiment of that oxymoron that really shouldn't exist in real life at all: an "honest politician" for a long time, if ever.

We'll just have to see how far Rand, Justin Amash, Sheriff Mack, and our other "liberty candidates" fare, down the line.

But I doubt it. Dr. Paul is this society's last link to anyone who's literally lived through the Great Depression, who is in public life enough to share wisdom forged during that hard era, and one who's lived through every single important historical epoch, ever since.

Dr. Paul, an irreplaceable American Original.
