Quote of the day

. . . “We mustn’t judge” has become the national mantra.

We actually feel righteous about giving up on any belief in right and wrong, so we can simply feel indulgent about a public slow death from addiction and malnutrition, just as we draw back complacently from condemning a vile crime.

We are, quite simply, morally lazy. It’s too much effort to set our minds to the task of upholding what’s good, and condemning what’s not; we’ve fallen into the trap of believing that an explanation for abhorrent acts is in itself an absolution. . . Rosemary Mcleod
