Whence Thanos?

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos states his goals plainly. He wishes to reduce the population of the universe in order to create prosperity, reduce war, and so give peace and happiness to the whole universe. He sits back after battling the Avengers, satisfied that...

Ethics

Two Kingdoms vs the RFRA
