The ongoing march to cultural degradation that this story depicts reminds me: Assuming I live a normal lifespan, I think we will see the return of gladiatorial combat to the death broadcast on TV and/or shows where human beings are hunted like deer and have to outwit and kill their predators. All it takes is a few people to claim the “right” to do what they want with their own lives (including risk them for sufficiently huge cash prizes) and an enterprising TV producer to broadcast it all.
And our culture is already depraved enough that people will watch by the millions.
Oh, but we are the unquestionable Good Guys of the world. What right has God to judge *us*?
