With all due respect to the #Juan and Darkbeaver who are more multi-dimensional
than their mere opinions posted here, I beg to differ with this righteous attitude
of selectively being indignant with American hypocrisy and not equally of others' hypocrisy.
Even if you all deny being "selectively" indignant, you cannot deny the passion and energy
you bring to this subject above all others.
Thus this selective indignance is a universal human trait. It is common to see people
expect MORE OF THOSE WHO HOLD PROMISE than to expect anything from obvious bad guys
Which means you expect more of us because we're NOT THE BAD GUYS or IDIOTS.
You don't expect anything from the leaders of Sudan. You don't expect anything from
a Stalin, or a Pol Pot, or from Iran's current President.
Because they don't hold out the promise. Do they ?
That's only the first irony YOU GUYS are guilty of.
Wanna know the 2nd IRONY which is much more important and graver ?
A good teacher knows they will receive no support when dealing with a bad child.
No one expects anything of the bad child, but they do expect more from the teacher
and exact a burden so high that the teacher is on their own with no unity, no support.
It is an arrogant blind righteousness this selective indignance.
You might recheck your righteous reasoning on this matter.
