In the world of The Fall, God is dead. The narrator argues that, since we no longer have a God to tell us what to do, we need to find another "master" to replace him. Men have basically taken the place of God, because we are perfectly capable of subjugating and judging one another. Who needs God if we can do it all ourselves? The narrator finds religion to be farcical and hypocritical; we misinterpret, manipulate, and bastardize Jesus’ true intentions, he argues.
The Fall agrees with Jean-Paul Sartre’s assertion in No Exit that "Hell is other people."
