Our only way out is to stop complaining and blaming
Is it impossible to get a universally acceptable definition of the common good? I don’t think so
It’s not about whether or not the latest personal drone assassin and the (mistaken or otherwise) missile launch against the Ukraine passenger jet are going to be the genesis of World War 3. The world is already at war. Little wars and big wars, conventional wars, religious wars, cyber attacks – too many to list.
Too many sides and sides within sides to choose sides, let alone be able to draw clear lines, which if crossed will start a fight (there’ll be a fight about who has the right to fight).
We’re all for and against so many things between us that it is difficult to gather a homogeneous army, wear one uniform, or find sufficient common cause to rally the troops to get to an in-your-face, obvious war...
