Why care about "World Opinion"?

Postby Danyet » Fri Oct 13, 2006 5:31 am

If you are ever morally confused about a major world issue, here is a rule that is almost never violated: Whenever you hear that "world opinion" holds a view, assume it is morally wrong.

And here is a related rule if your religious or national or ethnic group ever suffers horrific persecution: "World opinion" will never do a thing for you. Never.

"World opinion" has little or nothing to say about the world's greatest evils and regularly condemns those who fight evil.

The history of "world opinion" regarding the greatest mass murders and cruelties on the planet is one of relentless apathy.
Ask the 1.5 million Armenians massacred by the Ottoman Turks;

* or the 6 million Ukrainians slaughtered by Stalin;

* or the tens of millions of other Soviet citizens killed by Stalin's Soviet Union;

* or the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis and their helpers throughout Europe;

* or the 60 million Chinese butchered by Mao;

* or the 2 million Cambodians murdered by Pol Pot;

* or the millions killed and enslaved in Sudan;

* or the Tutsis murdered in Rwanda's genocide;

* or the millions starved to death and enslaved in North Korea;

* or the million Tibetans killed by the Chinese;

* or the million-plus Afghans put to death by Brezhnev's Soviet Union.


Ask any of these poor souls, or the hundreds of millions of others slaughtered, tortured, raped and enslaved in the last 100 years, if "world opinion" did anything for them.


On the other hand, we learn that "world opinion" is quite exercised over Israel's unintentional killing of a few hundred Lebanese civilians behind whom hides Hezbollah — a terror group that intentionally sends missiles at Israeli cities and whose announced goals are the annihilation of Israel and the Islamicization of Lebanon. And, of course, "world opinion" was just livid at American abuses of some Iraqi prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad. In fact, "world opinion" is constantly upset with America and Israel, two of the most decent countries on earth, yet silent about the world's cruelest countries.

Why is this?


First, television news.

Second, "world opinion" is shaped by the same lack of courage that shapes most individual human beings' behavior.

Those who don't fight evil condemn those who do.


It is when "world opinion" and its news media start liking you that you should wonder if you've lost your way.

plus hundreds-thousands (??) of russian soldiers (non-professional) put to death by so-called pieceful operation in the Middle East my country was involved in due it's own "interests" and how they were treated there.

By the way I recollect your mentioning about the movie "The 9th company" ( "Девятая рота" ) - so have you watched it already?

There are many Russian stores near to where I now live. Unfortunately none of them yet have this film available for rent.

First, It doesn't matter whether who did what to whom. The point of the topic is WORLD OPINION DOESN'T CARE!
Anyway, your opinion only reinforces this. Perhaps when your English gets better you will be able to figure this out.

Second: The fact that you have accused USA as being promoters of massacre and evil makes you lose any credibillity that you may have actually had. So, go back to your Rice Krispies and continue reading the back of the box!

of course it matters. you have to give correct examples before talking about world issues. most probably american opinion doesnt care about anything and it is quite understandable. first u massacre or make people massacre each other, then u care about them.. it would be weird. but dont talk about world opinion. we care much more than u think

oh the same old theme.. anything against usa makes people lose credibility..
i m happy for losing credibility in your eyes. cause it supports the fact that we are not in the same lines.

You have no idea or understanding of the topic here. Read it carefully again or just go away and let someone with understanding talk!

I see that the Nuances and subtleties in thought that are required to assimilate and understand this post in order to give a logical and meaningful response are simply too much for your puny one track brains.

So just close this thread, unless someone with intelect shows up!
