  1. Hey Rae,

    I found it really interesting that even though the Iliad was written over two thousand years ago it is still relevant in today’s political sphere. It shows that throughout time man has sought to not only protect his property but also his reputation. In the Iliad it is shown how man values material wealth over the life of another human being. Even in today’s world when we decide to engage in a conflict with another country, we all too often take fear, honor, and interest into account before human life. There is a overall lack of regard for human life when material wealth is in question. Examples of this can be easily found in how welfare and health care reform are fought against by the 1% so that their taxes do not increase ever so slightly.
