The Myth of Moral Equivalency

Terrorism's sponsors and supporters take many forms. To my mind, the sneakiest is the fellow who finds equality between the victim acting in self-defense and the perpetrator. Hence, "moral equivalency."

Burt Prelutsky takes on these folks in the Myth of Moral Equivalency found at

Prelutsky says,
"Our former sense of morality hasn’t been replaced by immorality, at least not entirely, but by something that’s probably more dangerous because it comes cleverly disguised as broad-mindedness."

He makes a good point, and all should consider it.
