  2. This is a very likely negative impact of the GOT. We have become desensitized to cruelty and man inhumanity to man, globally. Of course, the slitting of throats is part of the Bible. The Jews did that a long time ago to themselves, mind you, but to commit suicide, rather than being captured by their enemies. But GOT made it almost a routine for getting rid of enemies.

    • Just because it is in the Bible does not make it less barbaric. Slavery is barbaric even when practiced by kings and queens of so-called great civilizations, and by the wealthy in expensive clothing. Call a spade a spade, no matter who is holding it.
