How far is Gilead from USA 2018? I am transfixed by the dramatization of @handmaidsonhulu. It is spellbinding, heart wrenching, bitingly funny, dark, foreboding but scarily, hauntingly familiar. With the flashbacks that show the 'just before' Gilead, the hairs on my neck stand to attention and make my skin crawl. It feels ominously possible under the current demonstration. Things that one could not imagine possible in yesteryear just continue to escalate and deteriorate until yesterday's scandal and atrocity seems banal and mediocre by comparison to the most recent announcement.
Does anyone care anymore about "boys will be boys locker talk" when babies and children are being separated from their parents and holed up in detention center? The very same parents who braved inhuman perillous conditions to cross over the border I am bid to escape murder by starvation , execution and poverty. Are we closing our hearts and souls along with our borders only to separate families and send them back to be slaughtered. How far off Gilead are we and how do we crawl back?
