Because the movie takes place in a lawless town, most of the messages include the topic of society, such as who has the right to kill in law and order and the responsibility to your community versus your own self-interest.

This is saying that we can all pitch in and cause a good Tipping Point in the world. We can prevent crime.
Moreover, the total amount of toxins and debris discharged by human beings is incredibly increasing in today 's world. Most of the waste produced on land is either intentionally or unconsciously discharged into the oceans. Marine pollution and aquatic debris can utterly destroy the oceans causing extinction of the marine creatures. Innovative techniques should be implemented in the law to prevent the marine environment from any further damage. In order to improve the marine environment, the government and the Environment Public Authority of Kuwait should take immediate actions that can influence the society and help in minimizing aquatic debris and pollution.

There was a video that was released to the public that showed vast amounts of dead fish just floating on top the Clinch River and portrayed the high toxicity level of the river after it had received the runoff from the TVA spill. In response to the release of the video, the Tennessee Valley Authority took steps to stabilize the runoff. A spokesperson for the Tennessee Valley Authority stated that even though the river did have some trace of heavy metals that the coal fly ash slurry was not toxic and in terms of toxicity one cannot call it toxic until the final analysis comes in (XXX). An attorney with the Southern Environmental Law Center called the statement irresponsible and stated that coal fly ash slurry contains concentrated amounts of mercury, arsenic, and benzene. Local residents and environmental groups expressed concern that the fly ash slurry could become more dangerous once it dries out.
