I very rarely post in here, but I'm curious as to the general opinion on this article by Noam Chomsky... Noam Chomsky: Paris attacks show hypocrisy of West's outrage I agree with his points and it's something I've found maddening for years, but I've found it particularly infuriating in the hysteria since the Charlie Hebdo attack. Of course, the phenomenon of "Us v Them" and "they commit crimes, we fight the good fight" is hardly new, and hardly a "Western" trait, but I think it's something that is sorely overlooked in our society. Many of us instinctively believe we are the "good" guys, while our "enemies" are simply "evil", therefore whatever we do to them is justified and whatever they do to us is unjustifiable. I believe this is completely absurd. Thoughts?
