Position paper : The play Antigone and Wikileaks

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

The research paper is essay 4. This is a position paper: You must take a stand, a position, and argue your point-of-view, using the secondary sources from the databases to support your argument. The question is when is it right to break the law? Recently, in the news we have learned about controversial cases: the founder of Wikileaks have released government information to the public. You will have to research one of these to understand the controversy. Use your research to help you form your argument.
Some people call the founder of Wikileaks traitors; others hail them as heroes. This is a similar dilemma in the play Antigone. The question in the play is who is right or more right, Creon or Antigone? Keep in mind that Antigone as a character represents the rights of the individual; after all, we have the Bill of Rights in our constitution which gives us freedom of speech, the right to assemble, the right to practice religion as we see fit; Antigone represents those rights; she feels it is her religious duty to bury her brother. Creon, on the other hand, represents the needs or rights of the state, of the government, to preserve itself. We all have laws we have to abide by whether we like them or not. Creon sets a punishment for Antigone — death — to discourage treason in his state. Who is more right? Why? Choose to support in your argument Wikileaks to defend or attack along with Antigone or Creon.
