  1. Richard Aubrey says:

    The alternative to “peace” is not the opposite to “peace”. The alternative is to understand there are assholes out there who aren’t going to take the peace class and they get up in the morning, as Drew-Diaz says, determined to kill you.
    So be prepared to unsheathe the sword from time to time.
    Or get somebody who will. Then, after everything’s copacetic, you can slag him for being so bloody-mined.
    Or die.
    Pick one.

    Thank you for such a balanced article, Julie. I’m sorry it took me so long to find and read it.

    As for Richard’s response above, it’s heartening to see someone who’s objective enough to be able to understand and sympathize with what apparently motivated the Tsarnaev brothers. Indeed, when we’ve finally stopped being such assholes around the world we will then have the luxury of ‘slagging’ them for their behavior without the overt hypocrisy which so many are currently exhibiting.
