Today I was dwelling on the use of the religious (specifically Christian) names used in We're Alive. What do they mean? What is the significants?
Then I thought: perhaps the names and characters point to a broader religious message in the story. Something along the lines of: Apart from the restraining order of Government, man's true corruption is revealed. We're Alive contains no shortage of morally wayward people. Yet, who are the people in the story who are the most self-less and uncorrupted by power? Is it not Sgt. Cross, Saul, and Angel?
