Walk away

I'd read "The ones who walk away from Omelas" years ago and it now seems so timely.  It would be crazy to have a utopian society that relied upon the suffering of a child to maintain their prosperity. 

With the #Metoo movement there are people who who have been living in Omelas being revealed.  Women do not need to tolerate abuse.  Children do not need to tolerate abuse because the citizens of Omelas are walking away.
