Study questions:


1. There are at least 4 (possibly 5) people in this story.
Who is the most fucked?
The least?

2. Is there always a motive for speech? always a motive for action?
when are these motive suspect? and when are they not?

3. Do you trust the advice of others in regards to decisions most dear?
if so, do you examine their motives? their reasons for you to live your life
a certain way?

4. Do you think Ben really saw what he says he saw?
if not why not?
what possible motives could he have for relaying what he did or did not see to B?

5. What motive could A have for impugning Ben's integrity? for making B wonder if Ben had an ulterior motive?

6. There are no wrong answers, which makes it unlikely that there are any right answers...
which pretty much mean we're fucked...
this isn't really a question is it?
well, comes to terms with this idea, in language - that sounds like you couuld get an essay out of it...
so there.
