The death of real people is now popular entertainment, in a way reminiscent of the ancient Romans feeding the condemned to wild beasts in their stadiums and coliseums.

The fundamental notion of ‘justice’ is undergoing a profound and disturbing perversion. “Having your day in court,” is no longer the desired outcome. The public cries out for the blood of others as swift retribution. Often, that retribution is demanded on scant evidence. Slander, or the weight of negative, unreasoning public opinion is all it takes to deprive others of their right to life. Injustice is the new justice.
