life. Even though, it never shown during the trial. I believe the same should go for religious teachers. Religion is there to be some sort of personal guideline and not a law everyone should follow. I know, I’d get some disagreement with that last statement. But, to follow the personal guidelines, one must follow Socrates way to grow and learn to better themselves. 5.Was Fonda's character being unrealistically skeptical about truth at the start of this film? Why or why not?I don’t think Fonda’s character was being unrealistically skeptical. I think he’s the thinker of the group. Every other character wanted to go to the ball game or skip work, but he wanted to be honest. This movie is perfect for this section. Fonda’s character is the Socrates of the group. He wants honest and fair rules and that’s what Socrates lived by. Socrates made people think deeper, harder, and more critically. It made some people uncomfortable and some people aggravated because they just didn’t want to. This is the exact same. Fonda’s character made others think hard and long for putting an end to someone’s life. And, like I said, they didn’t want to sit aroundand talk. They wanted to ruin this kid’s life and run off. I definitely believe Fonda’s character was in the right.
