Via Unfogged, George Saunders’s manifesto of the PRKA, or the People Reluctant to Kill for an Abstraction:

At precisely 9 in the morning, working with focus and stealth, our entire membership succeeded in simultaneously beheading no one. At 10, Phase II began, during which our entire membership did not force a single man to suck another man’s penis. Also, none of us blew himself/herself up in a crowded public place. No civilians were literally turned inside out via our powerful explosives. In addition, at 11, in Phase III, zero (0) planes were flown into buildings.

Read the whole thing. What the world needs, I think, is a little more reluctance.
