    Bill Gates said "So, if we lie to our government, it’s a felony. But if they lie to us its politics." The government lying is very commonly shown throughout the novel 1984 written by George Orwell and it also happens quite commonly in our world today.

    Despite the varying motivations of governments in the works of Antigone and “Allegory of the Cave”, both share similar problems.
