It is an interesting story that most are linking to

the current US political climate. Supposedly the actions depicted in the story are inspired by a perverted interpretation of fundamentalist Christianity.

However if one objectively examines what is depicted in Gilead, one may find many more parallels to what still occurs in many areas of the non US world. Think about which religious movements subject women to genital mutilation as punishment, prevent women from having any voice in their society, view women as property, brutally repress dissenting opinion, and wants to spread it's message throughout the world.

Viewed in this light, the tale becomes more horrific and chilling when one realizes that most are oblivious.
