Economist Thomas Sowell: “Some have said that we are living in a post-industrial era, while others have said that we are living in a post-racial era. But growing evidence suggests that we are living in a post-thinking era. … One of the talking points against Israel is that far more Palestinian civilians have been killed by Israeli military attacks than the number of Israeli civilians killed by the Hamas rocket attacks on Israel that started this latest military conflict. … Israel is trying to win the battle for survival, while surrounded by enemies. Might that not be more important? Has any other country, in any other war, been expected to keep the enemy’s civilian casualties no higher than its own civilian casualties? The idea that Israel should do so did not originate among the masses but among the educated intelligentsia. In an age when scientists are creating artificial intelligence, too many of our educational institutions seem to be creating artificial stupidity.”
Patriot Post – Digest For Tuesday
My Opinion: Our “schools” are a joke. Especially those “Institutions of Higher Learning” as they are called these days. Our Colleges and Universities used to be there to teach you shit you needed to know to make your (successful) way in life. Now they just want to make you Politically Correct (and Liberal, but don’t tell anyone). When my “Humanities” class at Olympic College degenerated into a “White Male Bashing” Class I walked out and have not been back. Colleges and Universities used to be bastions of Free Speech (especially during the 60’s) but are now afraid to let anyone really speak their minds for fear of being sued by someone who’s feelings were hurt.
And, if you stop and really look at it; those places now do not teach you any more than you can learn for free online. Sure, you don’t get a “diploma,” but does having a diploma really mean anything now? It is a piece of paper proving you’ve been indoctrinated, not that you’ve really learned anything.
One more point: During WWI and WWII, didn’t we kill more of the “enemy” than they killed of us? Isn’t that why we won? Didn’t we drop two atom bombs on Japan to prove to them that we were willing to kill every single Japanese to win? Didn’t we kill more Japanese civilians then they killed American civilians? Isn’t that how “War” is supposed to go? Kill them until they quit killing us. You go, Israel!
If Hamas continue to hide behind civilians (like the cowards they are) then civilians are going to die. Maybe it’s time for those civilians to rise up and tell Hamas to go to hell. Until they do I have absolutely no sympathy for them. None. Nuke ‘em all until they glow in the dark and make a parking lot of their country afterwards.
