Ribbons on police cars send a poor messageAs an aside, this ("impartiality") was in former, wiser times, known as "being an idiot". I say this without rancor, in the strictly medical and descriptive meaning of someone who is incapable of deploying concepts in such a way as to reach a reasonable conclusion.
And notice that if this kind of mindlessness is truly a value, then the denial of this mindlessness is equally a value -- for who is impartial ol' Cigdan to partially complain about my opinion that his version of impartiality is the pure creed of the double-talking weasel?
It involves the ability to make judgments free from bias and discrimination -- which includes political views.Cheering on and encouraging our troops as they kill Taliban murderers (more, faster, please!) does not imply a political affiliation -- if one considers oneself Canadian, that is.
And even if one is on the other side -- as one presumably is if one professes the virtue of indifference between Canadians and Taliban -- one must agree that retrofitting Taliban terrorists with new holes is a carbon-friendly means of supplying needed nutrients to Mother Earth and reducing the carbon footprint of the religious fascist community. Surely we can agree that the smallest steps towards saving the planet may sometimes dovetail with steps towards saving the victims of Islamofascism?
