Just watched a spectacular film called The Purge. Have you guys heard of this film? This film sets in the United States of America which has been reborn into a new nation. Crime rate is at 1% low and it is all because of a government program called “The Purge”. The Purge is a special program where all emergency services such as the police, medics, and all other army forces are suspended, leaving the country into a total lack of security. Rich people are held hostage as they have to defend for themselves. Oh, did I mention that weapon Class IV or lower is permitted to be used? That’s right, you can carry and use an assault rifle to kill people.
The Purge lasted for 12 hours from 07:00 P.M. until 07:00 A.M. on the following day. There will be no law apply except that the government has given immunity to the highest general and army staff. Well, it’s to be expected that the government will not play their own law. Such typical hypocrite, the government is. Now, the messed up part is where you have such thing as “The Purge” you’ll have your typical overzealous The Purge enthusiast.
The Purge as many analysts said is another effective way to boost the economy in the United States. Since people in the high crime rate area tends to be at the place where poverty flourished, many poor people are being killed during The Purge which is another benefit for the government since you are throwing out your unwanted and the non-contributors to the society. It’s messed up, I know.
However, you can’t just say no to the program because it fucking works. Crime rate has lowered to a 1% because of The Purge which quite logical in my opinion. By logical, I didn’t say that it’s a moral thing to do. It’s just that if you have a program where people are allowed to kill other people since there will be no police who will put the bad guys to the slammer, you’ll treat other people nicely for the remainder of the time. You don’t want to piss your neighbour off since you don’t want to risk getting them angry and use the opportunity to get back to you ten folds.
But if you ask me whether it is moral to do such program, I have to say I disagree. It’s not a moral program because I believe feeling of safety is my right as a human. I have the right to live and this program just blatantly ignores the cruelty of the humankind. I believe killing other mankind is wrong and no matter if this program works that’s just flat out holding hostage of the citizens. This program makes the government the terrorist.
