Ex Oram Rana

Ran across an article [Link] this morning about a frawg, Beelzebufo ampinga

which masses in at about 4.5 kg and dined on dinosaurs (small ones, at least.) 

Somehow this seems enormously contemporary, almost a model of modern capitalist organizations preying on their customers. 

It also evokes a bit of the Hobbes – Locke debate with this fellow being the Hobbesian and the “hypnotoad” being the Lockeian. 

Humans are no d*** good and thus one may as well get some good out of them versus humans are unspecified and undecided so one might as well control them. 

Now all that I have to figure is the mapping into partisan politics.
