Debate on capitalism and morality held at USC

The Daily Trojan wrote:
One audience member commented that the United States had been at war continually for 60 years, exposing capitalism's dependence on war.

"We haven't been at war enough," Bernstein said.

In terms of the situation in Iraq, the United States needs to use its superior military force to "annihilate our enemies in the Middle East," he said.

Bernstein suggested using nuclear weapons to solve the problem.

Taking the long view, we fought two world wars and a Cold War to rid humanity of really bad 19th Century philosophical experiments and leftover dysfunctional medieval cultural memes. Then these idiots come along and revive some of them.

Even worse, our semi-literate press corps knew about these people years ago, and were too ignorant to realize what would happen if someone let them have a little power. Its not like they were a secret conspiracy or something.
