North Korea – Left’s Response

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

I won’t say a thing about the North Korea summit.  I have no idea what it means.

However, I’m astounded by the (liberal) left’s militant reaction.  And on Drudge Report it’s all about the legal drama surrounding the Russia-burger.

If you’ve ever wondered why peace is hard, consider the situation today.  How much effort and sacrifice is put forward to peace?  It’s the last thing on most people’s minds.

I’ve begun to harp on morality lately, and I want to bring some nuance to the discussion there.  America’s cultural habit of evangelical political beliefs has caused trouble, it’s true, but I’m not sure we can blame “American morality” itself on the whole.  I think we do need a moral, and not pragmatic, stance against war.  We need to understand that engaging in war violates certain principles.  And we need to be evangelical about it.

No one will ever care enough about peace, otherwise, for society’s attention span to acknowledge it.
