the less money the idiots have, the more just the world is

I believe that I would enjoy living in a world where more assholes were as honest about their priorities as you, sir or ma'am. I think the rest of us would get a lot more done.

(Of course the real problem here is your ill-gotten hope that justice exists outside either literature or state-subsidized vengeance. But it's easier to convince someone they've been honest in a socially inappropriate fashion than it is to convince them their worldview is flawed and naƮve.)
