Soylent Green Incorporated Is People
This is a great line I've seen a couple of times, but it's sadly timely tonight with the execution of Troy Davis (in Georgia).
It's somewhat similar to the line currently posted above on my blog, from Jon Stewart: "Bad jokes and gay marriage are destroying this country. But torture can save it."
There are times we should ask ourselves, and certainly press others - what exactly are your values? What are their consequences? (And what if the power dynamics were reversed, and you were on the receiving end of your world view?)
Hat tip to Sojourner.
