If you kill 1 person, you’ll be branded a murderer and hanged.
If you kill 10-100 people, then you’ll become a celebrated serial killer, get loads of media coverage and may even have a film made about your life.
If you kill thousands of people, you’re probably a soldier and you’ll be decorated with many many medals.
If you kill millions of people, then you’re probably someone like Hitler, Stalin or Mao. You’ll enter history’s celebrity list and every child will know your name for hundreds of years to come.
If you kill billions of living things every year, some of them for no rhyme or reason, then you’re probably the precious civilized human race. As a reward, you get to inherit the Earth, which is yours to totally screw up.
