Don't make us feel bad.

If you'll allow me, I'd like to transition from reminding you how Elly warped the children to showing how she and John teamed up to ruin them before talking about his solo contribution to making Mike, Liz and April a drag on society. The first thing that should be noted is that both she and John seem to believe that the worst thing that a person can do it to make them feel guilty about an activity that pleases them. The strip is marred by one of them doing something selfish and stupid only to turn around and bitch about the terrible people who want to deny them their harmless amusements and pleasures that affect no one and infringe on no one's rights.

This is owing to a sort of wishful thinking on their parts. They want their actions to not have consequences or to inconvenience other people in order to preserve an illusion of perfect innocence therefore anyone who might be run over in their quest to seek out comfort as if it were the sovereign goods either ceases to exist or actually knows that they should get out of the way but, owing to a love of chaos and hatred of the good, stand in their path with their demands. Since the children learn how to see people by emulating them, we see children who want to run over other people who blather about wars being declared by pop stars they aren't jealous of and pregnant women willing them to slip on the ice when they're called on for violating the standards of common decency.
