After all, isn't the American approach to pretty much anything "throw enough bullets at it and you're bound to hit it eventually?"
Like "throw enough bullets at this individual, we'll get him eventually." Or "allow enough megacorporate monopolies, and one of them is bound to eventually be benevolent." "Allow enough corruption and eventually a just law will be written." "Bully enough other countries via closed and secretive processes to adopt your unjust laws and eventually you'll regain industrial and economic global supremacy."
The hell of it is that this approach actually works. Some bright spark somewhere eventually stumbled upon the excellent idea of “repeat a lie enough times on Fox News, and eventually you can convince the American public of /anything/.” I may dislike the American approach to just about everything, but the reality is that “spam [X] over and over again until [you achieve success]” seems to work for them.
It just means that there is no way you could ever make comparisons like “one bullet expended, one individual killed.” Those folks just don’t work like that.
