Criticism of Plato's theory of knowledge

IT IS ELITIST 

Plato's view of knowledge is only accessible by a few people (Philosophers Rulers)

His view also goes against our everyday conception, where most people claim to know quite a few things. 

The idea that only a few people can glimpse the truth, and further that these people should rule in our best interest, is certainly anti-democratic.
