"Not everyone has to obey the law, because allowing some people a certain leniency serves a greater good" is not especially deep for you and me, but it would be deep for a ten-year-old, and probably too deep for a six-year-old.
An unflinching analysis of the meaning of "good" and whether the concept of allowing harm for the greater good is a logically consistent position is, unfortunately, too deep for a lot of adults I know.

I never said it did. That wasn't one of the assumptions that I was calling baseless.

That was this season. He changed his mind a week or two later because he didn't like an episode. To no one's surprise, really...

No, he doesn't believe in April Fool's. Of course he gave up on it, because not even Ameri can change Ameri.

So, I wonder if winter will be gone next episode or if we'll actually have additional episodes in winter for the sake of realism. I hope the latter. The spontaneous winter coming and going for the Hearth's Warming episode was jarring.
