Why would the US want to â€œdefend Taiwanâ€? What does â€œdefending Taiwanâ€ even mean? Who are we defending from what â€“ and why?
Weâ€™re trying to save the people of an island in China from communism by giving them democracy. This is our business because we are the people who decide what is right and wrong and we decided Chinese communism is wrong. So we will start a nuclear standoff with a superpower country because we really just are that moral. We are so moral that we donâ€™t even care if everyone dies, just as long as they know how moral we are.
These people are telling you, without evidence, that they are the eternal arbiters of some kind of static, permanent moral architecture of the universe that they are still in the process of inventing.
These people say: â€œwe are always right about everything,â€ and if you then ask them if they were wrong 5 years ago when they werenâ€™t dressing little boys up like girls, injecting them with hormones, and cutting their dicks off, they will tell you â€œwe were never wrong â€“ we just continue to get more right.â€
Just try to listen to these people. When they are telling you about how there is a fixed moral order that they alone define and which is also constantly changing â€“ â€œdemocracyâ€ â€“ they will say â€œwe just keep getting more right everyday.â€
