On the Moral Superiority of the Rich

Toads of Property

The rich don’t need to kill to eat. They give employment to people, as the saying goes. They don’t do the hurt themselves. They just fork it out. Everything is done to please them and everyone’s perfectly happy.

Louis-Ferdinand Céline
Journey to the End of the Night (1932)

Drawing by George Grosz: Toads of Property (1920)
