Thomas Sowell: Moral Paralysis

A must-read from Thomas Sowell at the Atlasphere, comparing pacifist Europe in the mid-1930s to America and western world today.
“Moral paralysis” is a term that has been used to describe the inaction of France, England and other European democracies in the 1930s, as they watched Hitler build up the military forces that he later used to attack them.

It is a term that may be painfully relevant to our own times.
