Default Re: Should this Superman kill? - Part 1

Completely agreed. So glad they decided to make it

I have to say, I may just be totally sad, but hearing Superman say one of my all time favourite lines out loud, sent a shiver down my spine. I cried. It was awesome

For those who haven't seen it, or read 'What's so funny about truth, justice and the american way', the line is:

"Dreams save us. Dreams lift us up and transform us. And on my soul, I swear...until my dream of a world where dignity, honor and justice becomes the reality we all share--I'll never stop fighting. Ever.'

I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.

"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
