Wandering In the Wildnerness
With The Guardian


Thanks to Atlas Shrugs, for making me aware of this, from the Guadian:


Compassion is putting yourself in the other person's shoes and feeling sympathy. It does not require affection. One might feel compassion for Hitler, Stalin or Saddam on learning about their appalling childhoods (like most famous dictators, they lost a parent before the age of 14), or even for George Bush (who had a beastly time), but still hate them for what they did.


The Guardian has clearly lost their moral compass. It's going to be a long forty years.
