Escapees? What did they do ?
In the beginning, they mostly starved unless they came back to the reservations. These returners told wild stories that festered. Over time, escapees survived at higher rates. That is, until they started attacking us, and our infrastructure. The Oversight Committee responded with human ruthlessness.
Hey, did you know 'ruth' is a perfectly valid word even though you never use it?
It means ' feeling of pity, distress, or grief.'
You say 'ruthless' but not 'ruthful',
and 'wrathful' but not 'wrathless.'
Ever thought about what your language use says about you?
