The purge is soo unlikely, that the reason behind it are so dumb. Like psychological, allowing people doing it more maybe allows them to resist more but on what basis of research does that come from?
And then what happens the next day? Wouldn't it be very stupid to have the law in the first place, since they may know who killed everyone. What happens to the theives and unlaw people the next day? Would they really let people get away with a selfless law the previous day.
But I would just stay in a zombie protected high level security.
I remember thinking what a bad idea it was. There are so many ways it just doesn't work. I don't think many criminals would obey it. See first off you have crimes of passion which aren't premeditated. These would still happen. So you'd still have murders. Mental illnesses. Another thing that's not going to be tethered to this 12 hours of crime. Serial killers aren't going to resist for a whole year, what would they do with themselves.
Then you have organised crime. Drugs. Ask yourself this, your making a hefty amount selling meth and the government comes up with this law which states you have only 12 hours of selling time. 12 fucking hours, you have to be joking! No drug dealers gonna sell just during this period, fuck that.
Secondly, the film has this idea that it will reduce unemployment to record lows. I fail to see how this is possible. Let's say you somehow manage to get a significant portion of people to commit crimes during only this period, does this change how you'd be viewed after? These scriptwriters do realise that you aren't just hired based on how law abiding you are, they also judge how you are as a person. People will know if you've committed a crime and you won't get hired. At the very minimum it will be the same as it is now with every person having to impress their employee just like always.
I honestly have too much respect for people to kill anyone. Even though my uncle is a crook and a shit faced loser, I'd still let him live I suppose. I really would not commit too many crimes because once you get that hype to kill you'll be like Dexter with everything going down with you. I'd probably just do what I normally do because I'm content with my life and I don't hold grudges easy. If I did go to the store, I'd still pay for the stuff I want. From what I've learned from this topic is that people in here have too many vendettas. And I don't believe people here would actually start going vigilante and start a killing spree either. The person who is a criminal deserves the suffering, but what about his or her family and the people who care. Yes it would be nice to put a bullet through a pedophile, but I don't see me doing that either. And you just don't know who is a crook nowadays, could be anyone. So I'd just go with the flow and continue living my life how it's lived.
You see morals in no laws applied still they are doing wrong against fellow humans and it is a choice of right and wrong..who will decline to act against fellow humans and who will act........
Sure it is hypothetical but in a situation of no police or guidelines...who would do what or not do it can actually happen..
Nuclear weapon in the atmosphere..a EMP reaction and that is electric magnetic pulse which would knock all electricity and mechanical devices out..no rules or police and just about the same as applied in the movie...just chaos at its worst!!
It is up to the individual in other words in what they do and most would try to survive and do whatever is meant to do that..even kill others,steal from others and do harm to others...
humans are stupid,ugly and do things like murder,stealing and others like greed and it is their nature to do this and this will be the end of human civilization because of this nature!
No; criminals are people who break the law, and in a lawless situation criminals cannot exist. In this hypothetical situation you're simply left with people who commit moral atrocities. However, in the absence of law right and wrong is entirely subjective, defined by personal opinion.
I sure hate to be a person with a lot of enemies facing that scenario. If something like that by the smallest chance happened, I'd personally, go underground with my family and a bible and pray to god like never before...
That sounds fun in theory but in reality it sounds horrible. Anyone can break into your house, beat you to death and rape your wife/girlfriend/whatever and take off with your possessions once they're done,. maybe for kicks they'll burn your house down with you both tied up in it on their way out
So in reality I'd probably grab everything that matters to me, and take off to somewhere I'm likely to be safe, I'm not a gun supporter in a normal real-world situation (you'd have to be pretty paranoid that you'd need a gun for "protection ) If if this was a yearly even I'd consider getting one, taking it with me and not sleeping for the whole 12 hours If I don't leave the house I'd consider guarding it somehow, any defense idea I can think of from as lethal as spikes scattered all over the perimiter, to as minor as, say, soaking the lawns with water in hope it'll cause some would-be intruders to slip
Well the possibility of getting robbed is always on the table, but some act as if a slew of terrorists are going to target their small home town that nobody knows (or cares) about beyond its boundaries, or, in some bizarre cases - zombie apocalypses (I sure hope those people were joking )
