A Quote from "Arrogance is Run By Gangsters"

[One of my favorite on-line writers is a fellow named Joe Bagent. This quote is taken from the end of his answer to a reader's letter to him "America is Run By Gansters"]

If there is to be so much more misery in the world, I'd rather be among those alleviating it than causing it. We all make choices. There's no high fallutin' moral stuff involved in such a choice. All things considered, it's just easier in the long run to help our fellow man than to fuck him over.

Which proves, at least in my case, there is some moral advantage to being lazy.
