Of Course I'm Right


There is a scene in the movie The Longest Days, about the 1944 invasion of Normandy, where one German and one American general each ask... "sometimes I wonder whose side God is on." This seems to miss the point about cause and effect. If everything is impermanent and interrelated at the same time consequences unfold through millions of conditions and variables. Hence when God is not on our side we side-step and say LIFE is unfair, or it is GOD's will. These are moments to catch out breath. To try and make heads and tails of what is happening.

The nomination of a judge to be considered for a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court shows both change and interrelationship. The growing divide between two factions with one now having the political control of the decision-making process and the other that does not, Over many years the political strategy that the other side are devils has evolved. In a religious context that one must not enter into conversation with the Devil, is usually the norm. Right and Wrong becomes a cliche even to the point if I believe I am morally right it is okay to refute even the possibility that I could be wrong. Assessing is a messy time consuming process.
