A Little Truman

"Given your feelings on the a-bomb, I think you'll really like the first 30 seconds of this youtube clip," says a long-time reader, in sending me the above. Daniel Nichols says it better than I could — When Consequentialism Comes Home to Roost. "Just as the United States acted morally in bombing Hiroshima and other attacks on civilians because the Americans had a good end in mind- ending the war, averting American losses that would have entailed from an invasion- so Mr Breivik, whose own goal of averting a Marxist/Muslim takeover of his country, claims he was justified in killing 77 people, most of whom were children of Labor Party members."
