Of course at the end of the day, we all know he'll be too lazy to carry out such a plan.

Also this is exactly why you need to think things through. Not all good deeds lead to good consequences. Which begs the question, does it matter if the intentions are good or not, if the result is bad? That being said, does it matter if the intentions are bad or not, if the result is good?

Now if you're wondering how I came up with idea, it's because one of my courses pointed me to this: http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/
I noticed that most of the goals these guys plan to achieve, would probably cause severe overpopulation, and what's worse is that fixing overpopulation ISN'T on the list.
Thankfully the first goal involves stopping poverty, which is impossible. Poverty is a moving goalpost, based on the average income. So by trying to stop poverty, you'll be increasing the average income, which will just move the goal post. The only way you'll ever fix that is by having almost everyone have a similar income (which is not going to happen).
I suppose it might be possible to get almost everyone to be super incredibly poor through recessions and so on, but the few rich people who remain will probably skewer the results. Besides, doing that, you won't have enough money to fund all of the other goals.

Oh, and if all of those goals are met, then charities will collapse resulting in tens of thousands losing their jobs. But hey, who cares about those guys!

Lastly, I want to make it clear that Tod is EVIL. He twists things. He makes good things sounds bad, using logical conundrums. It's always best to take what he says with a pinch of salt. My personal opinion is somewhere inbetween the normal opinion and the one Tod shares (because on one side it's good, but on the other it could lead to a future no one wants to live in), so please don't hate me for this comic.

Also... um... if you celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a merry Christmas tomorrow.
