Thomas Hobbes took Jesus Christ’s famous “Golden Rule” and turned it on its head. “Do not that to another, which thou wouldst not have done to thyself,” he wrote. Hobbes believed that the negative framing of Christ’s admonition was more perfectly in concert with the natural desires that drive human beings to form societies. Hobbes believed that fear, more than virtue, motivates human beings.
Frankly, I don’t give a shit what motivates you. If you can look at the pictures in this montage (found via A Tiny Revolution) and not be unequivocally opposed to military action against Iran, then you are forsaking your capacity for basic human decency. I look at those pictures and see a place I’d love to visit. As far as I’m concerned, those who look at those pictures and see a bullseye are scum of the worst kind. Freepers perhaps; LGFers, even.
On which side of civilization do you stand (or crawl)?
