EXT. ATHENS – DAY
We open to a sunny day in Athens. The bustling marketplace is filled with people bartering for goods and services. We see a group of citizens gathered around a man in a toga. This is SOCRATES, the famous philosopher.
Good day, my fellow Athenians! I have come to ask you a question. What is the meaning of life?
The crowd begins to murmur.
The meaning of life is to live a good life and help others.
And how do we determine what is a good life?
By living according to the laws of our society.
But what if the laws of our society are unjust?
The crowd begins to murmur in agreement. Socrates looks around, waiting for an answer.
Then we must find a way to change the laws, or find a way to live outside of them.
Very good! So, the meaning of life is to find a way to live a good life, even if the laws of our society are unjust.
The crowd cheers in agreement. Socrates smiles and looks out into the crowd.
Now go forth and find your own meaning of life!
