What would need to change for us to speak the “plain truth” to each other? What is “indirect speech” and why do you think people resort to it?

I have attached the reading material for your review, also there is a 4 minute video that can be found on https://youtu.be/1RWOpQXTltA easy question needs 500 words, please do not include the question as part of the 500 words. It does not have to be MLA format just a singled spaced, times new roman font 12. Questions: 1) Consider the article “If You Don’t Know You Are Held Captive, Does It Matter?” as well as the video(s) you watched on Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. What conclusions do you draw from the allegory? If people have developed a way of understanding the world that makes them comfortable, does it matter if it’s false? Is there some higher moral duty to expose them to the truth regardless of their own preferences? 2) Based on Langer’s thesis, what is the difference between a sign and a symbol (briefly define each) and why is the distinction between the two so important? What examples of signs and symbols does Langer provide? What examples of signs and symbols can you provide? 3) What do you think Pinker means when he says, “Such hypocrisy is a human universal”? Do you believe that this hypocrisy is necessary? Why is it not surprising that indirect speech has a long history in the arenas of politics and diplomacy? Please of you answer 500 words each question it should only be about 2 pages long. let me know if you have any questions.
