Stu: Go ahead and spend your days hoping for war, pestilence, and recession, Barry. Recognize that this characterizes you as just about as far as one can get from true altruism. Also reflect on the immense successes that all previous revolutions have enjoyed at ushering in their ostensible goals. Count the dead bodies and ruined lives and smile in gleeful anticipation of the next catastrophy. What a monster is one who hopes for clamity in order to realize his agenda.

What a shameless monster.

Qx: Yes, that's what capitalism does to the planet but what makes you think Barry wants catastrophe? After all, he's not a Bible-thumper who speaks of hellfire and brimstone. He doesn't even make a profit out of this.
