Trojan Horse and Utopia

Storyboard Text

  • Mythological
  • Example
  • Explanation
  • Trojan Horse - During the siege of the city Troy, Greek soldiers were faced with heavy defenses. As a solution to conquer the city without losing more men, a hollow, wooden horse was constructed and 40 soldiers waited inside. The horse was a symbol of peace, and was taken into the city. That night, the soldiers exited the horse, killed the soldiers in Troy, and opened the gates to the Greek army
  • Historical
  • Kevin, who had grown tired of Paul's constant barrage of insults, decided to make a sort of Trojan Horse. Kevin emptied the filling from his snack cake for tomorrow's lunch, and replaced it with horse radish, hot sauce and toothpaste. The following day, Kevin offered the snack cake to Paul as a payment so he wouldn't give Kevin trouble. As soon as Paul took the cake, Kevin's day got a whole lot better...
  • Example
  • Paul saw the cake as a treat, given to him by Kevin who didn't want to be attacked that day, but wasn't expecting the cake to be Kevin's way of retaliating. This is similar to how the Greeks offered the Trojan Horse as a sign of peace, but it was actually part of the Greek Army's plan to siege the city of Troy
  • Explanation
  • Utopia - During Adolf Hitler's reign, he worked towards a "superior" race of blonde haired, blue eyed, Aryan people. Hitler's plan was to create a Utopia that consisted of only these people, and to spread his power across all continents until the Nazi party controlled the world.
  • In the not too distant future, there is uncontrolled variations in genetic code. Each human is constructed, rather than born, and with each Human, a specific set of rules must be met in order to have a child. In this utopia, there is no emotion, there is no personality, just so-called perfection.
  • In the 'not too distant future' described, all humans are genetically similar, and are altered to fit a specific criteria. This is similar to Adolf Hitler's planned utopia of genetically controlled Aryan people.
