A local do-gooder says that WE MUST address the problem of "genocide in Darfur." I believe I have as much sympathy for and desire to help my fellow human creatures as the next man (if less than a good Christian should). But I don’t remember signing up for WE. What is this WE? And who is deciding what WE MUST DO? Does it occur to this do-gooder that he is demanding that fellow citizens give of their goods and risk their lives to satisfy his pose of benevolence? This absentee moralism strikes me as the most fundamental flaw of the American national character and a form of fraud that has played a large part in bringing on most of our national disasters, including the War Between the States, World War I, and mass Third World immigration.
