Conflict of Interest

Brown and Browning

March 11 - April 9

"Squirrels are smarter than most people - they're even smarter than dogs. They sneak into my garden and eat my vegetables and I can't grow enough for all of us. So, each morning when the pump is running and they can't hear me, I sneak out and shoot them. I've learned from them what an enemy truly is - it's a conflict of interest - they don't mean me harm and vice versa, but we have a conflict of interest and I have to kill them. I don't find that terrible do you? Why should we evade the truth - there is no such thing as non-violence. We teach children to be non-violent and it’s not the truth. Violence is a part of life and it must be faced."
