καὶ ὅλῃν κτλ.: i.e. καὶ ἐξηγήσεσθαι or the like, supplied from μνησθήσεσθαι. The construction cannot (as J. and C. suggest) go back to μὴ οὖν παρῇς.

μέγα κτλ. καί after φέρειν=‘or rather’ (atque) as in ὀλίγου τινὸςκαὶ οὐδενός (Ap. 23 A). For γιγνόμενον Liebhold proposes γιγνομένην, but see on IV 427 D. The feminine would be awkward after πολιτείαν, and κοινωνίανπαίδων, though grammatically feminine, is logically neuter.

ἄλλης -- πολιτείας is explained by ᾖα τὰς ἐφεξῆς ἐρῶν (449 A). Stallbaum makes a curious slip: “quoniam ad alias πολιτείας partes considerandas celeriter accedis.”
