Imagine a cave in which people have lived their entire lives, facing away from the mouth of the cave with chains forcing them to look only at a blank wall. In actuality, they’re looking at the shadows that move across the wall, cast by objects and people that pass before a fire that burns outside the cave. It is these shadows that the chained people call ‘reality.’
~Allegory of the Cave
This is the allegory used by Plato narrating the way in which Socrates explained how we are being controlled by illusions cast over us by the powers that be. However, the allegory also explains that there are people whose minds have been freed from the cave, and see the shadows as an illusionary truth: weak and distorted images of the reality that exists outside the cave. Soon enough, Socrates was tried and executed for ‘corrupting the minds of the youth,’ or in doublespeak, for starting a mass awakening among those that ‘they’ are threatened by, otherwise known as any and everyone.
