Nothing Buttery and Moral License

October 18, 2008 § Leave a comment

Often I hear someone contend that voting for a presidential candidate who supports a policy of murdering the innocent is nothing but an expression of a preference for an overall less bad outcome over a more bad one. It is as if people don’t think voting is a concrete human act with a particular nature at all: as if it were pure undistilled intention with respect to an election outcome.

It strikes me as a very bizarre way of thinking about it. But in the age of nothing buttery, bizarre is the new normal.
