              Amorality of the Left
"Someone who does not know the difference between good and evil is worth nothing." -- Miecyslaw Kasprzyk, Polish rescuer of Jews during the Holocaust, New York Times, Jan. 30, 2005
Much of Europe, and the American Left have come to perfectly fit that description quoted by Dennis Prager. The Left, which bills itself as "progressive" and caring is no longer able to make judgments. This is not immorality (bad morals), but amorality (the absence of morals), and this trait of the Left has recently appeared in many forms.
Since the 1960s, with few exceptions, on the greatest questions of good and evil, the Left has either been neutral toward or actively supported evil. The Left could not identify communism as evil; has been neutral toward or actually supported the anti-democratic pro-terrorist Palestinians against the liberal democracy called Israel; and has found it impossible to support the war for democracy and against an Arab/Muslim enemy in Iraq as evil as any fascist the Left ever claimed to hate.

There were intellectually and morally honest arguments against going to war in Iraq. But once the war began, a moral person could not oppose it. No moral person could hope for, let alone act on behalf of, a victory for the Arab/Islamic fascists. Just ask yourself but two questions: If America wins, will there be an increase or decrease in goodness in Iraq and in the world? And then ask what would happen if the Al Qaeda/Zarqawi/Baathists win.
A couple of days ago there was a story about a woman in Germany who was going to lose her unemployment benefits because she refused a job providing "sexual services" in a brothel. The most interesting part of the story however was this line:
The government had considered making brothels an exception on moral grounds, but decided that it would be too difficult to distinguish them from bars. As a result, job centres must treat employers looking for a prostitute in the same way as those looking for a dental nurse.
Now, I've been to a few bars in my life, but somehow I have never had much difficulty distinguishing them from brothels. Why is it that the German government could not? The same line of thinking that makes one lose the ability to distinguish a bar from a brothel makes one also lose the distinction between attacker and attacked, and between good and evil.
