I know there a lot of smart people on this forum so Im hoping I can get some starter ideas. I have to write a one page paper on Platos, The Allegory of the Cave. (If you have read it, I could really use your help!!) It has to be a one page single space paper responding to these two questions: How does the allegory of the prisoners in the cave watching shadows on the wall relate to us today? & What shadows do we see; and how do they distort our sense of what is real? I was thinking that the allegory of the prisoners in the cave relates to us today in the War on Terrorism. Does this sound like a decent thesis? Does anyone agree? (This is by no means finalized, its just a starter thought. ) Im just super confused... not sure if Im going in the right direction... help?
