What is known about the political views and actions of Pythagoras?

At the age of 40, Pythagoras left his native island of Samos, not wanting to live under the rule of the tyrant Polycrates. Having moved to the city of Croton (in Italy), he created a scholarly community there, aspiring to become the ruling party. Unable to retain power in Croton, Pythagoras and his students left the city. He later tried to seize power in the Italian city of Tarentum, but failed and died.
