If you’re looking for loopholes, you’re trying to get away with something. If you’re trying to get away with something for personal gain, you know it’s unethical or illegal. If you don’t know it’s unethical or illegal, you’re still a loose cannon and should be stopped.
Everyone’s worried that the end of the “The Book of Kevin” spoiled the series, when the beginning was even worse. It showed a woman faithfully following a preacher who foretells an end of the world that never happens, and is ostracized in the end. Which will be the outline of the series. Nora will follow Kevin through his trying to stop the end of the world, and he’ll succeed, but when the end of the world doesn’t happen, Nora will be ostracized and deny she’s the mad woman on the roof.
I wonder how many times the world has been saved by those who warn of the end and go unacknowledged, even by themselves. Or just give the world a little reprieve, while the rock slips a little bit more.
