LEFTIST MORALITY CAN'T FACE THE FUTURE | 2003-01-04

I made another statement in SUPERTERRORISM that no one is allowed to talk about. I said that the development of WMDs probably means the end of Holy Diversity.

If we face the fact that a few hostile people can kill millions there is little room for a policy that forces hostile groups to live side by side.

On the left no one is allowed to question Holy Diversity. All kinds of people must be forced together by liberal social policy.

But what happens to Holy Diversity when any hostile person will soon be able to wipe out the whole community?

No one asks.

And we haven't even gotten started dealing with the real problem yet. The Twin Tower attacks were low tech. What happens when suitcase nuclear bombs and tailor-made diseases become common?

Nobody wants to think about that, so we are betting everything on our ability to Clamp Down on weapons of mass destruction.
