Moral Relativism And Democracy
Absolutely wonderful post over at The Wandering Mind:
As the Democrat Party and their power brokers and strategists gird themselves for the three ring circus of post election court fights and charges and counter charges, it might behoove them to think of what we look like to the rest of the world-- especially in countries where democracy is new or still young. We need not be teaching by example how to subvert a vote and make it appear 'legal.' In most countries, the legal system can easily be used to manipulate a populace. Is this the message we need to send? Do we need to set an example that contrived racial divides, concocted so as to further a political agenda, are accpetable? In countries where real discrimination exists, how credible are we if we engage is such practices?I think Alex is right on. I'm not going to hold my breath...but I do hope that in the near future our political types can learn that there are more important things that just obtaining power.
At some point, the ideals of democracy must trump the personal ambitions and agendas of politicians and political parties.
