A political allegory based on the introduction to Amy Tans novel - Saving Fish From Drowning - which contains an anonymous quote that reads-- A pious man explained to his followers- It is evil to take lives and noble to save them.- Each day I pledge to save a hundred lives. I drop my net in the lake and scoop out a hundred fishes. I place the fishes on the bank - where they flop and twirl. - Dont be scared - I tell those fishes. -I am saving you from drowning.- Soon enough the fishes grow calm and lie still. Yet sad to say I am always too late. The fishes expire. And because it is evil to waste anything I take those dead fishes to market and I sell them for a good price. With the money I receive I buy more nets so I can save more fishes.
