sane words...

...from Dr. Sanity!

For a group that wholeheartedly subscribes to moral relativity and subjective ethics, you've got to wonder about the left and their constant search for some kind of "moral authority" to justify their beliefs. After all, if morality is relative; if truth is subjective and there is no objective "good" or "bad"; then why bother?Let us look at their tactics to try to understand the underlying psychological motivations in this obvious contradiction.
Cindy Sheehan is an "absolute moral authority" on the Iraq war because her son was killed in Iraq. To the leftists, it doesn't matter that there are hundreds--even thousands--of parents who happen to believe the opposite. The only opinion that matters and conveys authority is one that they agree with.
. . .
In all three of these cases, the persons in question have become the left's vocal "moral authority" because they happen to agree with the left's beliefs about the Iraq war and are anti-Bush, anti-Republican, and anti-American.
What these three examples {Sheehan - Kerry - Murtha} (and there are many more) have in common is both a breathtaking subjectivism and relativism in one breath; and ideological absolutism in the next.This is as good a demonstration as any of the inherent philosophical and psychological contradictions that the postmodern left exploits in order to achieve political power.
They are perfectly aware that their positions don't make any sense and can be refuted by anyone with basic knowledge of logic and logical fallacies; but their goal is to maintain the psychological denial necessary to believe in the left's
ideology. Interpreting this defense and exposing it is essential to countering that ideology.
. . .
This theory of relativity works very well for them. We haven't heard from Cindy for a while, but we will. Soon Murtha will disappear from the MSM headlines and news shows as Haditha ebbs in the public consciousness--but both will return when another milestone in the Iraq war is met and surpassed or when something unquestionably positive happens--as we witnessed when Zarqawi was finally dispatched from this space-time continuum.
You might want to remember all this when the cycle of gloom, doom and quagmire starts up again. Those who take the time to counter the left's relativistic and out of context arguments will never get the exposure that the original article receives.
It's just a matter of opinion or semantics anyway. Right?
