Remember the destruction by the Taliban of irreplaceable Buddhist statues? Raising an outcry about that (which I did, because it was the right thing to do) was hip. Raising an outcry about the destruction of churches hundreds of years old is apparently not as hip.
There is little that we can do to stop the spread of hate that springs up like a prolific weed from the bloody soil of our planet. However, surely we can elect officials who will stop interfering in the affairs of others as if we were omniscient. We are not. In fact, we are often quite ignorant and belligerently so. If you wish to call the libertarian and classic American position isolationism, so be it. Perhaps it would be a welcome respite from nosy interference in the affairs of others.
