Hey guys! I wanted to take a break from drawing Chapel this week and give myself a breather between Seasons 2 and 3. But I wasn’t going to let a week go without giving you guys a new strip to read! I originally drew this strip several months ago, as a guest strip for a comic called Unshelved Book Club. Every month, they invite someone to take over their strip and review a book for them. I chose Plato’s Republic, because I thought it was an unconventional – and therefore very Chapel-esque – choice.
Anyway, I’ll be back next week with more Barnaby and the official start of Season 3!
Platos Masterpiece, The Republic, is a lengthy dialog discussing several topics such as self, freedom, and the ideal society.
The main question Plato brings up in the test is What is Justice? Its a very interesting inquiry.
He eventually concludes that justices is when everyone confiorms to their role in society. Therefore since MY role in society is that of a child without obligations
its perfectly just for me NOT to do any chores. Chapel, Im impressed youve read Platos Republic, but even THATs not getting you out of dishes duty
