Modern aspects of Aristotle's Meteorology

Aristotle applied his Golden Mean to economic and social order and to the relationship between the state and the individual, but he could not, of course, apply it to those matters that had no median, such as choosing between honoring and ignoring one's contracts, between commitment and being uncommitted, or between loyalty and disloyalty.
Aristotle saw that humans were social creatures, that social participation was inescapable, that no one was immune from the rules of a community, in other words that no citizen belonged just to himself, that every civilized person was a member of the state.
Aristotle saw politics as the manner in which people govern their relations with each other and that people were, therefore, not just social creatures but also political creatures.
