More on the center left and general idiocy in punditry

Well the counter points to this article: why don't we Focus on Tibet any more? And why such focus on Israel. I'm not sure why this kind of view is extremely highlighted in American "intellectual circles" but it does seem to be part of the bowing to powers that be that comes instinctively to many in this country (world too, but that's besides the point).

Let's examine the first moral point that places like South Sudan or Congo never (not for the death tolls they provide us) figure large in our media. Mainly because people we hate aren't committing them.

So compared to Syria and elsewhere we'll never hear about what our enemies do. With China I imagine the fact that the right sees ways to get money from our relationship with that nation means we'll hear silence forever.

And Israel? To assume the coverage is anywhere near fair would be an exercise if madness. But that it does figure largely is because it stands in for the right as a place where Jesus will return combined with the view of white settlers vs the horde.

Any other idiotic questions?

I quit social media because the idiocy was far too much. But it would appear that there is a real problem in many blogs too. The internet is far too weak for discussions or rather we need a better solution. Let's see.
