You're essentially trying to excuse a large force's persecution, subjugation and displacement of a smaller one to gain access to a natural resource. As a society, we don't do that. As a matter of fact, we tend to condemn it.

Trying to justify it by invoking some bastardized interpretation of the Bentham Pannomion holds about as much water as a thimble. Utilitarianism has its place; implying one's claim to absolute power is more significant and essential to anther's by simple arithmetic is not it, especially under the guise of "health benefits."

If you can read this signature, you're dying.
