The Handmaid's Tale

Particicution in the novel.

Explain the meaning of "particicution" within The Handmaid's Tale. Is it believable? Can you imagine yourself going along with the "rules" if you were placed in a similar situation?

I would liken this event to the stoning of a woman. The man was convicted of rape and sentenced to "particicution." No, I can't imagine going along with the "rules."
