This blog is supposed to be an outlet of my own thoughts and opinions (such as they are -- see the slogan). Every once in a while, however, someone lays out what I'm thinking and feeling in a way that I just can't approach. Today, that person is Dennis Prager:
I have contempt for "the world." I cherish and admire countless individuals, but I have contempt for "the world" and "world opinion." "The world" has never cared about evils inflicted on human beings. The Communist genocides meant nothing to humanity. The Holocaust meant nothing. With almost no exception, the mass atrocities since World War II have likewise absorbed humanity less than the Olympics or the Miss World Contest.
That's just a small sample. Go read the whole thing. And give thanks to LGF for the link.
