"I just, you know, everyone always goes on about what a terrible place the world is, but I can't help but think it could have been so much worse. I mean, when you think about it, logically it should be worse. Humanity should have evolved, according to their instincts, into a barbaric society where everybody ate everybody else. I think it's amazing that this universal framework has been built to try and contain man's basic impulses. Man isn't naturally this good, benevolent creature; man's natural instincts are to eat as much as he can, fuck as much as he can, and be the last one to die. But for some reason, people have built religion, and law, and ethics, out of this overwhelming desire to be good. And the world functions like this, and the people who revert to their natural inclination to destroy are the exception. And yet people despair at the state of society."

"You know... some people would just have said 'nothing.'"
