The Cave: Plato’s Allegory in Claymation

I found this cool little video at The Big Picture, who was made aware of it by his friend Ken at Cicero's Free Citizen Post. One of the great allegories of all time . . . and a suitable one, still, for our times.

The Cave: Plato’s Allegory in Claymation

by Kent Thune - May 10th, 2013

This is a wonderful clay animation adaptation of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, which dovetails nicely into my Decline of America piece posted yesterday. The video demonstrates simply and briefly how our decline is probable but preventable.

The number of “prisoners” increases daily. My goal is to free as many people from “the cave” as possible. Please share with anyone who may benefit.

Hat tip to my friend Ken at Cicero’s Free Citizen Post for making me aware of the video.
