The Road

What is this inarticulate suspicion afloat in so much of our entertainment product nowadays (is it just the influence of gaming?) that we need a good old fashioned apocalypse to straighten our moral spines?  Some nostalgia for that wild west clarity of good guys (people who don’t eat other people) versus bad guys (people who do)!  Perhaps it’s a human all too human reaction to the demanding complexities of our life now,  its “relativism.”  As if an encompassing understanding of multiple experiences and points of view brought to our doorstep by this connected world is just too exhausting.
