There were six billion humans in the world. One American, I once heard, consumes enough calories to keep 40 African children alive. John and this girl were locusts, blazing through resources by the ton. Here was a man who would burn half a gallon of gasoline to get a pack of cigarettes, who would let a mile of rainforest be razed to make pasture for McDonald's cows. Here was a girl who would buy special food for a dog while a Somali eight-year-old starved, all while wearing the symbol of the Inquisition around her neck, the intersecting strips of gold the last thing millions saw before their limbs were ripped from their bodies in medieval torture machines.
