The Big Lie, part 2,024,304 in a continuing series
If someone tries to defend the Abu Ghraib abuses by saying that Muslims aren't voicing any outrage over the videotaped beheading of Nick Berg, force them to read this post immediately.

Then, and only then, go after them on the moral equivalency. They're arguing that the only time Americans should hold themselves to higher moral standards is when our opponents do the same? Wonderful way to establish ourselves as world leaders, guys.

Current Mood: crankycranky

As we all know, all Muslims are terrorists; after all, some Christians have murdered people, and so it follows that all Christians are murderers.

Even if there wasn't an outcry, it still wouldn't make what's happened at Abu Ghraib right.

Perhaps it is time for me to make the following observations:
How many rights that are done, regardless of intent, will never balance out the harm done for one wrong.
Each wrong becomes an exuse for increasingly polarized factions (speaking in a global perspective) to commit more wrongs.
Repentance is nearing the point where morally right actions are deemed at near worthless value when trying to disbalance the wrongs of the past.
Nationalism is extremely dangerous, as is Religious Nationalism (which we're beginning to suffer a bout of).
How can we balance this situation, on an individual level, since the antithesis of what's happening now is no longer measured on the same plateau as the measurement of wrongdoing?
Personally, I fear total war eventually emerging if resolution to the problems plaguing all sides are resolved in a more peaceful manner.

Anyhow, I'm half asleep, and I'll probably forget to post this elsewhere (Tlands or Paradice), so, gnite!).
