No one seemed to want to do it. The children in the beginning piling the rocks seemed to just be playing as kids do.
The one child in blue was symbolic of training the next generation into the mindless rituals of the past.
There was no talk of why, just , just because we do.
The empty rituals that are followed with no conscious knowledge of why just that we do.
Jessie herself was not openly opposed to the ritual until her family was singled out and then only because it was her family. She did not speak up
when it might have been someone else. Only then did she speak the truth that it is unfair. The whole ritual was unfair, not just to her but to them
all. None of them wanted to play it out as they were all friends, but you know, sacrifices must be made for whatever ancient reasons those people in
the past developed them.
That's what I got from it. An old liberal metaphor. Sooner or later ''they'' will come for you if you don't stand up to them when they come for
someone else. Patterns of the past were developed in the past to suit the mentality of the past and not the mentality of the present.
Holding to that interpretation, and admittedly my own liberal bias, it is an indictment of rules and laws that are out of step with how things are
now. This could also be taken as an indictment on sacred teachings that no longer hold. As well it could be a statement on the Constitution that was
put together for the people of two hundred and fifty years ago and, depending on how we see things now, could be noted as being out of date.
