What basic principles should inform the variety of healthcare systems across both HIC and LMIC countries ?
hocles is emphasizing the importance of cultural morals by developing Creon’s adversity. Sophocles shows the audience that the ignorance of cultural morals can lead to extreme hardships. Sophocles also shows the same message through Oedipus catharsis. Oedipus experiences catharsis through blinding himself. When talking to the chorus Oedipus says, “Oh yes, I pierced my eyes, my useless eyes, why not? When all that’s sweet had parted my vision” (Sophocles 73). He accepts the consequences of his sins by blinding himself. He Oedipus recognizes the unmoral life he has lived and the horrible consequences that follow. Sophocles’ message that cultural moral are an important aspect of life is also present in Oedipus the King. Sophocles message about morals is still relevant in the modern world. Nowadays people live horrible lives because of the ignorance of even one moral. Similar to Oedipus and Creon, one moral flaw can turns someone’s life around entirely. Modernly, moral failures often result in a prison sentence. The prison sentence can often replace education, minimizing the prisoners chance of getting a successful job. After a prison sentence, criminals often turn back to crime, because there is no other sufficient source of income. Sophocles uses the arrogance of the tragic hero archetype to inform the audience the significance of cultural morals. Oedipus and Creon are arrogance, the quality of exaggerated self pride. Their city, Thebes, is an extremely religious city. Greek religion plays a major role in their culture. Prophets are a significant aspect to keeping the gods happy. It is culturally known that prophets are extremely accurate. The receivers of the prophets valuable advice are morally obligated to persevere the given advice. Another cultural moral is to follow the laws of the gods. Creon and Oedipus are both tragic heroes because they display the three aspects of a tragic hero; hamartia, peripeteia, and catharsis. Sophocles uses Creon and Oedipus’s hamartia to teach the flaw of ignorance to cultural morals. Hamartia is a characteristic of a tragic hero that ultimately causes there downfall. Their hamartia is arrogance, or exaggerated self pride. Oedipus and Creon both ignore the advice of prophets, because of their self pride. Originally Creon vowed to keep Antigone safe. However, Creon acts as if he is above the gods, sentencing Antigone to death, and ignores the prophet. Righteously, Antigone performed a proper religious burial on her brother Polyneices. Creon established that Antigone breaking his law, and essentially sentences her to death. Antigone says to Creon, “What ordinance, what law of heaven broken, what god left me to cast my eyes toward, when sacraments must now be damned as sacrilege” (Sophocles 232). Antigone is stating that Creon is acting as if his laws are above the laws of the gods. What should be the way humanity connects to gods is being turned into a form of offense. However, Creon continues to ignore Thebes’ cultural morals. After Creon leaves Antigone in solarity to die, the prophet, Tiresias, comes to share news.
