In the past, I have opposed killing and eating the rich. This is because on any kind of rational world scale, I am part of the rich. More recently, however, I've been on the fence. In fact, just one thing keeps me from endorsing this wholeheartedly. And it certainly isn't the character of our rich—the people who run the U.S., like Henderson and Stein, are mind-numbingly brutal, cruel and stupid, and will surely destroy us all unless they're stopped.
The problem is that the people who run America, and every other country on earth, have almost always been mind-numbingly brutal, cruel and stupid. Even the ones who aren't (in Sweden, maybe?) are no prize.
