Chapter 11

* * * * * * * * * *

I can imagine a summit between some crazy fundamentalist Muslim leader and some conciliatory peacenik American diplomat.

Muslim: "We kill four thousand women a month."
American; "Could you bring that down to two thousand?"
Muslim: "Half? That is much too extreme. Three thousand."
American: "Okay, fine."


Socially-enlightened fools believe that we should always be willing to compromise, always be willing to concede. You should sit together, have a nice cup of tea, and talk.

That is nice, but you shouldn't compromise with evil.
Evil is bad. You don't want any evil.
