I watched part of the Republican debate last night (Dec. 15). I chose to listen with a more generous spirit than I have to date.
Each candidate genuinely believes that he/she is uniquely suited to be President of the US, an extraordinarily difficult job where every single action and word will be critiqued, examined, and probably slammed by those who dislike whoever the winner ends up to be. That takes guts. Or an extreme lack of caring what others think.
Nonetheless I had to stop watching when I heard declared that it would be a useful strategy against the growing menace of ISIS to arrange to torture and kill the families of ISIS members.
In other words, it is OK for us to do evil because the ends, i.e., the defeat of ISIS (which will never happen–another group will just rise to take its place) would be an unmitigated good.
