Gaza’s Real-Life Apocolypto!
2014 Mark Glen
Despite the truly horrifying nature of the theme covered in Mel Gibson’s 2006 blockbuster film Apocalypto–namely the manner by which innocent, defenseless people are hunted down, captured and later used as human sacrifices in appeasing the Mayan god Kukulkan , nevertheless what made the film’s bloody theme and presentation sufferable was the (mistaken) notion that it was a thing of the past and not of the present…
‘Indeed,’ so the prevailing wisdom goes…‘we’re waaaay past that…old hat…yesteryear…passe’…water under the bridge and over the dam…’
The problem with this assessment of course is that it’s as disconnected from reality as the notion that the earth is flat or that babies arrive from heaven via some delivery service known as Stork Express. Despite not being recognized as such per se, nevertheless human sacrifice is alive and well, kicking and screaming in fact–no pun intended–moreso now than at any other time in human history.
