‘The Greater Good’ Is Superhero Satire

Author Henry Brown contributed a short story to the 2019 anthology Appalling Stories 4 (to which I also contributed a tale). And back in 2014, Henry authored a satirical superhero short story called “The Greater Good.” Its synopsis makes it clear that it’s a tale for our times.
From the synopsis:
Infinite crises are going to waste! Greedy businessmen are making profits! Insensitive hatemongers are trying to make it against the law to be an illegal alien! People are harboring intolerant thoughts, while others are abusing freedom of speech to broadcast incorrect opinions!
The world has never known such need for a new narrative to neuter the nefarious network of neanderthal neo-fascists knocking at the noble ramparts of progress.
In a nutshell, the world needs a national agency of superheroes who know that now and then it’s necessary to negate a few nugatory individual rights for the sake of the greater good.
