Aristophanes The Birds is about corruption, weakness and power, and a perfect jumping off point to explore the sociopolitical moment we’re in. Two comic figures want to leave behind the structures of society and profit from exploiting the underleveraged power of the birds by encouraging them to build a fortress in the sky from where they can lord over mankind and Gods alike. How easily people are exploited based on fear, ego and greed, and how even noble ideas may be corrupted if those who have power are irresponsible and/or selfish. Or, as John Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton said to an Anglican bishop, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men…”
