This I believe that America is in the Cave. The Allegory of the Cave by Plato is something that describes how I live my life every day. I choose to leave the cave. I have always questioned everything; everyone should strive to ask all they can and continue to ask until the day they die. Americans, I have noticed have remained in the cave because to them ignorance is bliss. This is wrong if you don’t know what I going on in your own country then you shouldn’t support a political party because you don’t know much about the issues. This I believe QUESTION EVERYTHING!!
