Never judge a book by its movie.

Line Between Twilight Zone and Reality Beginning to Blur…

Twilight Zone Season 2, episode 29, called “The Obsolete Man” (we watched it on Netflix; I can’t find it safely available anywhere else) is about a futuristic society that has outlawed books and religion, and librarian Romney Wordsworth stands on trial for his life. Have you ever seen this?

At its first airing, such a mindset was accurately recognized as dangerous, but in our time our world is hurtling toward this type of society and people are passively sitting in the cultural waters, denying that the water is on its way to boiling.

When the state limits “tolerance” to certain people groups and lifestyles and demonizes the rest, and tells “religion” what to think, say and believe, and when some aren’t free, none are free and even those in the “protected” groups will ultimately not be safe. The new meaning of “tolerance” is total acceptance, and disagreement is equated with hate, but only on behalf of the “tolerated” groups, and these same people eventually turn on each other in this new Inquisition.

If this offends, perhaps the point is striking too close to home.
