Megan McArdle in 2002 when faced with the possibility that a New York transit strike might impose on her life while she was unemployed:
Our best hope may be that unemployed New Yorkers take to hunting down transit workers and pounding some sense into them.
One suspect the real reason the right wanted to invade Iraq was to watch soldiers, whom they consider their proxy when they want to hurt someone, kill some barbarians. McArdle wanted protesters hit with a 2x4, she wanted transit workers on strike to get beat up, she wanted Iraqis punished for the Saudis' attack on 9/11, and she wanted "one free Screw You" when Obamacare passed.
It might seem strange for a rich middle-aged white woman to have violent fantasies of punishing her perceived enemies but rich middle-aged white women don't stoop to violence themselves. They vote for the good-looking elite people with the right pedigree who support torture and murder and amuse themselves by imagining they have so much power they can eliminate their enemies with a few words.
