I am not overlooking the wonderful news that Muammar Qadaffi's homicidal reign is coming to an end. I certainly hope he soon comes to a personal end as well. He was a sociopath, governed only by his own fixation on his own imagined genius and his murderous hatred and resentment for anyone who disagreed with him, all of which " renders [him] the object of universal dread and abhorrence, who, like a wild beast, ought, we think, to be hunted out of all civil society," as Adam Smith puts it.
Muammar Qaddafi -- to hell with you!
