Maybe it's because of the Baltimore, Maryland traffic, but it just seems that maybe Ras As Ghul was onto a good idea after all, but was taking it just a tad too far.
When I first read about Ras As Ghul and his plan to reduce the world's population by 90% and then start all over again, I was appropriately horrified as to what a terrible criminal he was. Mass slaughter on that scale was obviously wrong.
Then I started to get older and older and handle automobile injury claims for a living and my perspective has changed. Maybe we do just have too many people in the world and god knows the IQ that some people have would be hard pressed to get past room temperature.
Now 90% seems a little draconian, but the older I've gotten the higher my acceptable percentage has gone up. Given how long Ras has lived, his percentage is very generous. I mean that would still be 600,000,000 people.
Of course a very busy work week, heavy rain and just a dreary day maybe adding to my mood, but still it's doesn't sound as evil of a plan as it once did. Also he wanted to make the earth a better place.
So maybe............nah he is the bad guy. Right?
