    Lighten up / get a grip - filed it under "entertainment" - just an interesting note - a "for what it's worth" - not something to "snarky" about - to turn a phrase.

    “Everything that is possible is fair...”
    Is that Objectivist?
    “But it’s your parents, Harry,” Ron said. Ron never really got it.

    Harry sighed. “The fundamental standard for all relationships is the trader principle, Ron.”

    “I don’t understand,” Ron said.

    “Of course you don’t,” said Harry affectionately. “This principle holds that we should interact with people on the basis of the values we can trade with them – values of all sorts, including common interests in art, sports or music, similar philosophical outlooks, political beliefs, sense of life, and more. Dead people have no value according to the trader principle.”

    “But they gave birth to y–”

    “I made myself, Ron,” Harry said firmly."

    It seems like things are purposely taken out of context to exaggerate. In this case, Harry's parents were killed. It's perfectly reasonable to make the assumption that they would have continued caring and enriching Harry's life. One can miss that lost opportunity. What is the background of the site and writer? seems snarky to me.
