It is not easy to talk about morality, but neither is to talk about sanity.
What makes talking about either difficult is people’s propensity to fall for propaganda; their ignorance of the details of the matter at hand and their eagerness to join the lynch-mobs of virtue signaling. Continue reading →
Early into the war in the Ukraine I got into a few heated arguments. I was told by a relative that my views on the matter are “incomprehensible and unacceptable.” Our conversation ended in a shouting match. Not unlike the ones about Covid. The point of these discussions is always, somehow, about morality and the vehement emotions in support of that moral conviction.
