This question comes from the readings Antigone by Sophocles an author of Greek Mythology.
In this reading, the King, his name being Creon, has announced to the entire city that the body of a man who was killed in war will be left unburried in the streets. His reasoning for this is that this man was an enemy of the state. The man he speaks of his nephew, his sisters son. Creon, the king, declares that any person caught trying to bury this man will be killed for doign so.
(Anyone who has read Oedipus Rex and Antigone would understand how twisted this story is)
But my question is:
if this man whose dead body has been left in the street for the animals to tear to shreds and the crows to feast off of was your blood brother, would you go bury him at the risk of being caught and sentenced to death for doing so?
It is not enough to just answer, express yourself fully. Why would you or would you not bury him?
