“Against the reality of our shared need for food, clothing, and shelter, education, health care, and meaningful work-and the gross inequality of the same-we construct a fable of society, as a vast ecosystem of diverse species, each with its niche and unique preferences, the top dog and the bottom-feeder apportioned their various integuments for reasons known only to Darwin or God.”

–Garret Keizer, Harper’s Magazine Dec. ’08, p.9
