‘‘ ‘Negative economic consequences’ also generate piles of corpses.  In a large [population], there’s going to be a margin whose difference between life and death is, like, five bucks.  And whoever takes those people’s five bucks kills them.  Statistically.

The little Freud in my head tells me everybody knows this and, really, that’s the appeal of doing all these tiny shitty things to masses of people for no demonstrable benefit.  If ‘‘we’’ do a lot of this stuff to a lot of people, ‘‘we’’ get to kill a bunch of them and act like we didn’t.  That’s exciting.’’
