Thus cruelty requires intent and/or remorse. Both require awareness of a 
sort. Therefore rocks cannot be cruel. However, they can be used in a 
cruel fashion, as my childhood memories remind me... using a rock to 
smash a fish, which was less cruel than letting it agonize on the shore. 
So, does nobility of action negate cruelty?

I'm so confused.
