Have you ever heard the fable of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave?
The short version is a group of people who lived their entire lives chained inside of a dark cave. Their only form of entertainment and interaction was viewing puppet figures that were reflected on the cave wall from in back of them as a fire burned behind them.
These prisoners made up their own names of the puppet characters and essentially dramatized these puppets because to them, this content that they consumed was their total and complete reality.
Fast forward until one day, one of the prisoners got free of their chains and wondered out of the cave only to be met by a blinding light.
After taking a moment’s look out, he immediately went back inside of the cave to tell the others.
The others were so consumed with watching the puppets that they couldn’t be bothered to hear the story from the one who escaped…the one who saw the real world.
Tune in as Coach Ashlie Walton and Detective Walton walk through how this is indicative of the same behavior that we are subject to in our media and how we need to be careful when to distinguish reality from the puppets on the wall.
