Rick (rwestbrock) | 2 comments What happens to the truce when we run out of violent criminals? Do we start lowering the bar of which offenses get you into the alien pantry or renegotiate the truce?

Arthur Weissmann | 2 comments Good question. There are always violent criminals around the world. If they feared repercussions, we wouldn’t have so much crime.

But if we hypothetically ran out of violent criminals, we would either go to war with the other species or even get volunteers who are dying of a terminal illness to serve as a sacrifice.
