It’s too complicated to explain why I’m saying this, but it is scary to reflect on the fact that many conservatives believe it would be ok for a foreign nation to attack America and to execute any American who doesn’t qualify for Geneva standards; which apparently would be any American not in uniform. As if self-defense is a capital offense. The mind boggles. Somehow, they have forgotten the difference between right and wrong and are merely satisfied with legal justifications. They agonize at criminals being let-off for “redtape” and yet they’re completely satisfied with killing people for technical reasons; and regard morality as yet more redtape. One begins to believe that they merely like to kill people, and one is probably right.
Maybe it’s just the booze talking, but I really don’t understand how the sadists haven’t taken over. I fear it’s just a fluke. I was thinking about it while reading John Dean and Michael Dorf at Findlaw discussing the Hamden decision, and truly fear that our luck won’t hold out and that the small-minded idiots will win-out in the end. But I’m naturally an optimist, so I will continue to believe that luck will somehow continue to save us all. I just don’t understand why we deserve it.
