Scott is the author of Dilbert and is a vegetarian. He also "loves capitalism". He has also said, "I will continue to mock bad bosses and people who are idiots, and I will try as much as possible not to be them. But I wouldn't confuse any of that with my full support of capitalism, which I've never been against." And why would he be? He, along with United Media, signed an eight-figure, five-book deal with HarperBusiness. What does eight figures look like? $10,000,000--at least. There is a line of Dilbert veggie burritos--Dilberitos, but some of them contain cheese. And, sure, he knows about the horrors of veal crates and doesn't eat dairy, but apparently didn't give a damn when he signed a deal with the we-pretend-we're-enviroment-and-worker-friendly-but-we're-really-just-evil Ben & Jerry's. He's also a nice guy, as we can tell from this quote from The Dilbert Future, "You're thinking I'm one of those wise-ass California vegetarians who is going to tell you that eating a few strips of bacon is bad for your health. I'm not. I say its a free country and you should be able to kill yourself at any rate you choose, as long as your cold dead body is not blocking my driveway."
