Random QuoteThere is a reason why this is not part of the US discourse on taking action to prevent or mitigate catastrophic anthropogenic global warmin.
A key doctrine of the cult of American Exceptionalism is that the USA has no ethical or moral obligations to anyone else, ever, for any reason.
We are America. The rest of the world has moral obligations to us, simply because we are America, the Greatest Nation In The History Of The World. (The world’s moral obligation to the USA consists principally of giving US corporations free access to their natural resources and cheap labor.)
The USA no more has “moral obligations” to the rest of the world than Rome had “moral obligations” to the European barbarians.
I mean, come on — to this day the USA has not renounced first strike use of nuclear weapons. Barack Obama, like every US president since Truman, is prepared to push a button and incinerate half the world. “Moral obligations”? Give me a break.Secular Animist
