Cicero said, "O Tempora, O mores!" (Oh the times, oh the morals!) And that
was a couple of thousand years ago.
Someone, a few days ago, astutely pointed out (I accidentally deleted the
post) that things are *different* and appear *escalatory* -- there were
times of beheadings and burning at the stake, etc, and now we have what we
have now. My opinion is shifting since mulling that one over.
There's a big terrorism scare now since flight 800 and the olympics.
Certainly these acts didn't kill *more* people than die in street crime
daily, yet it is viewed as *escalation*.
Just a thought...
