Dave, I'm not sure I follow some of your assertions. It is certainly true that many people do benefit from human suffering. All those involved in the arms industry, all those who benefit financially from firms used to supply equipment to blockade Gaza and destroy homes, build apartheid walls. But to say that I benefit is ridiculous. In fact the opposite is true. Because I am man of conscience i donate monthly to Medical Aid for Palestinians, to try and help, in some small way, releive the their suffering. You are right that many governemnts and people are complicit in perpetuating this suffering. I can't speak for you personally.
