The timeless stories contained in Aesop’s Fables contain simple and succinct morals which would benefit many people today in the world of business. They also play an important role in highlighting and demonstrating character traits. For centuries, fables served the crucial role of communicating a shared history, reinforcing a culture’s values and calling attention to important traditions.
Fables can also help us clearly see human shortcomings that might not be as easy to recognize if the characters are human. Almost 2,500 years ago, Aesop, told the story of The Scorpion and The Frog which is the basis of this modern-day Insider Exclusive “Justice in America” Network TV Special.
2,500 years later in 1968, Al Wilson, sang this same morality tale in his smash hit, “The Snake” which also tells that same tale of partnerships that go wrong. Here is a rare rendition of Al singing his major hit almost 2,000 years after Aesop’s fable, “The Scorpion and The Frog”
