I finished Agamemnon!!
I wasn’t expecting it to hit as hard as it did, to be honest. With the current situation between the US and Iran, it was eerily relevant. Because just as Agamemnon is a wanton conqueror, willing to sacrifice thousands of his own men and even his own daughter just to own a small strip of land, the US sends it’s own sons and daughters to die for control of the oil supply. Thousands of innocent people on BOTH sides are going to lose everything -their homes, their families, their lives, their autonomy - in the name of so-called “justice.” I am horrified by the actions my government has taken. If anyone knows of any way I can help support our brothers and sisters in Iran, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and any of the other nations the US has brutalized, please PLEASE send them to me. I’ll be doing some research of my own on this topic, too.
