Ghost of Christmas Present: If he is to die then let him die and decrease the surplus population. Ebenezer Scrooge: You use my words against me? Ghost of Christmas Present: Yes! Maybe next time before you open your mouth you will find out who the surplus population is and where it resides. It may be that in the eyes of Heaven that you are more worthless than hundreds like this poor mans crippled child.
