“Fuck you, New York Times. Choke on your fucking omelette, you heartless bastards….”
The Times’ verdict is clear: Jimmy Galligan struck a blow against “systemic societal racism.” He’s a hero, even though literally nothing he did was ethical, fair, or just.
He is an ethics villain, and she was his victim. Yet a large number of people in this country, perhaps even a majority, lack the ethical resources to figure that out.
“Hmmmm…what a dilemma! Keep on racing after killing a fellow driver, as if nothing happened, or treat it like a major tragedy, personal, professional, and human? Boy…my brain hurts.”
Such are the ethical problem solving skills of Harvard’s professors. No wonder the students try bomb threats.
Sorry, North Carolina, you can’t get to “ethics” from here.
What sense does it make to save a condemned man, at state expense, only to have to kill him later?
Denver and San Francisco decide that it is more ethical not to enforce laws because they disproportionately affect law-breakers. Welcome to the ethics of Bizarro World.
One is a gag, the other is a tragedy, yet there is hardly a filament of difference between them in the 21st Century ethics and rationality rot they illustrate.
