The spy who came in from the cold
What I learned
I always really enjoyed the ideas of spies, they're very intriguing to learn about, and I wasn't expecting to learn some of the things I did learn
It is a really intimate concept of how t.v shows and movies represent spies, because spies are a broad concept that's easy to sterotype
I learned a lot of different concepts of spies and agents, and how we represent them in commonly in movies and stories. I feel like we stereotyped spies in a different way then what they really were
Is there really a right or wrong for the greater good?
Can we afford to be moral?
I don't necessarily think we can, because we set examples of the opposite of a moral sometimes.
What kind of people spy?
People who are willing to risk themselves for something that's important to them, something that they truly destine for
Good and bad people, depending on their intentions
Why do people spy?
For their benefits to one's power maybe?
