One other thing that I have been thinking about today, in order to relieve the stress of my break in, involves super heroes and liability insurance. If you were a super hero, what kind of liability insurance would you need to carry? In fact, how could you even find a company that would insure you and what sort of huge premium would you have to pay? Imagine Superman fighting a villain in Metropolis, destroying buildings, homes, and city property in the process but putting the baddy away. He would then have to defend himself in all manner of lawsuits. In our society, he couldn’t count on the good will of the citizens of Metropolis, and that he was fighting for the common good, he would get sued regardless of this fact. It would almost make being a super hero not a worthwhile endeavor. You would spend ten times as much time settling all of the suits as you would fighting crime.
