What do you mean, "duty"?

Bill Wallo consistently offers thoughtful critiques, from a Christian worldview, of popular cinema. This week he's hit a bases-loaded, ninth-inning homer with his evaluation of why Roman Holiday simply couldn't be made in today's cultural climate. It's a sobering evaluation, and a must-read for Christians trying to understand the North American Zeitgeist. I would suggest only one edit to the essay: what Bill calls "countercultural" has, over the past forty years or so, become simply cultural.
