Fascinating. I find myself the appeal of Dostoyevsky is that of a man who faced the scaffold before exile. His work often alludes to an existential need to choose when faced with a binary decision. Like Camus or, controversially, Sartre when faced with joining the Resistance or collaborating with the Nazis. Omelas is no Utopia. It is more akin to Vichy - a comfortable compromise for many who knew what was being done to the Jews but were happy to participate in the crime. I'm for those who seek to engage and fight back. Omelas is real. It is pervasive. It is here and now.
