Judea Pearl: Die Normalität des Bösen

Those around the world who mourned for Danny in 2002 genuinely hoped that Danny’s murder would be a turning point in the history of man’s inhumanity to man, and that the targeting of innocents to transmit political messages would quickly become, like slavery and human sacrifice, an embarrassing relic of a bygone era.
But somehow, barbarism, often cloaked in the language of “resistance,” has gained acceptance in the most elite circles of our society. The words “war on terror” cannot be uttered today without fear of offense. Civilized society, so it seems, is so numbed by violence that it has lost its gift to be disgusted by evil.

(Judea Pearl ist der Vater von Daniel Pearl, der Anfang 2002 in Pakistan entführt und durch Enthauptung ermordet wurde. Die Tat wurde auf Video aufgenommen und ins Netz gestellt.)
