The political arena has great impact in our societies due to the relevance of the matters and decisions made.  Preston Jones explains this relationship through William Shakespeare's play, King Lear.  Jones describes how self-interest and the public good face each other with the role that decency has in these two elements.  He explains how the characters in this work of art represent real life situations in which people decide what roads to follow and that consequently, influence the way others perceive them.  Finally, Jones focuses on the importance of values in every person's life and stresses on the impact they have in our daily interactions.
