There are some bad people in the world, that
is for sure. Rotten cheneyficent bastards like Shu Zheng, like Nathalie Paravicini and like Rae Moses.
And absolutely, these are people we would all like
to see set on fire. I am no different. Like in some kind of holy rite, we’d douse ‘em
with gasoline, strike a match and dance naked around the flames celebrating the advent of the new
golden age we’ve ushered in where the sky is always blue and these people
are not under it.
But we cannot set them on fire, we are told, because setting
people on fire is wrong and anyway, it violates fire ordinances in most major metropolitan
areas. It would make us as bad as the people we’re speaking of (although,
between you and me, it would result in a significant
net gain for mankind).
Karma’s unreliable, the judicial system’s a
sham, and God’s too busy handing out leukemia to kids to even notice. Never forget: Stalin died in his sleep at age 75 in the comfort of his own bed.
