Final post on this subject

Matthew Yglesias posts on the links between our tolerance of the abuse of prison inmates, as discussed here recently, and the foul treatment of Moslem prisoners of war that we have seen over the past few days. He concludes.

I think the sickness at the heart of our society is a desire to be in the right, to believe that 'good' is a side to belong to rather than an adjective. And the alternative to that sickness is not postmodernism, but humanism.
