Moral Compass Points the Wrong Way

Doesn’t it seem silly to be a more ardent moralist when it comes to violent videogames than when it comes to the important stuff?

Lieberman from the Senate hearings: “Mr. Secretary, the behavior by Americans at the prison in Iraq is, as we all acknowledge, immoral, intolerable and un-American. It deserves the apology that you have given today and that have been given by others in high positions in our government and our military.

I cannot help but say, however, that those who were responsible for killing 3,000 Americans on September 11th, 2001, never apologized. Those who have killed hundreds of Americans in uniform in Iraq working to liberate Iraq and protect our security have never apologized.

And those who murdered and burned and humiliated four Americans in Fallujah a while ago never received an apology from anybody.”

Great news. We apologized before the terrorists and Saddam’s henchmen.

And they questioned our morality…

Concentration is important!
