The enduring 1960s "mad morality" isn't entirely dead. An explanation of progressive morality by Atbashian at Pajamas Media. (h/t, Instapundit). A few quotes:
But what is the source of a morality that forbids to fight terrorism and views the United States as the enemy? Clearly it isn’t rooted in the American tradition. Such a morality manifested itself on a massive scale for the first time in the 1960s. Many of today’s protesters admittedly crave to recapture the spirit of those days. Many will be singing John Lennon’s “Imagine.”
In the “progressive” book of virtues, American values are the quintessence of evil. So if you are a “progressive” and you aren’t mad at this country, that just means you’re neither honest nor consistent. But then again, because living by this dead-end moral code is logically impossible, one has to resort to hypocrisy and seek compromises, forever balancing on the edge of madness.
