Of course we can have no enemies and hate no-one.
We can also have a totalitarian movement, who are tribalists of a
medieval brutality succeed, and impose their vision of utopia on us.
They forbid women to have an education, health care, work, or to walk on
the streets unless completely covered by a face-mask and a tent. They
bury a woman suspected of adultery up to her shoulders before stoning
her to death. They kill suspected homosexuals by collapsing walls on
them. They have driven millions of desperate fellow Afghans into exile,
and leave the remainder to face destitution, and starvation. Religious
freedom, social mobility, tolerance, the guarantee of rights and
liberties in law, are all unheard of.
The left, who were happy to have left millions to the mercy of Communism
and the gulags, may also be happy to leave millions at the mercy of this
kind of Islamist terror - lining up as usual on the side of oppression
As Chris Weinkopf of the NY Daily News has noted, moral equivalence is
rooted in a kind of moral stupidity (or moral denial) - it's the
inability or refusal to ever make distinctions between the genuinely
good, the merely unpleasant, and the patently evil.
