preface

MY NAME IS ALEXANDRIA JEPSEN, AND I AM THE MOTHER OF A FALLEN CHILD. I WRITE THIS LETTER TODAY BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN GLOMMED BY GREAT SADNESS. IT REFUSES TO LEAVE ME. THE TEARS HAVE NOT STOPPED SINCE THE INCIDENT. DO YOU THINK BEHEADINGS CARRIED OUT BY COMMON CIVILIANS ARE ETHICAL? NOW, DON'T GET ME WRONG, I AM NOT ETHNOCENTRIC BY STATING THAT OUR CULTURE IS SUPREME IN ALL ITS COLORS AND SHADES, BUT PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT SOME CULTURES ARE JUST BETTER THAN OTHERS. I WILL STAND HERE TODAY AND MAKE PHILOSOPHICAL ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT YOUR VALUES, BELIEFS, AND CULTURE BECAUSE I HAVE BASIC WRITES. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS TOXIC, AND NOBODY IS GOING TO WIN IF WE SIT HERE AND PRETEND MORALITY IS RELATIVE. SOME CRITICS WILL TELL YOU THAT ETHNOCENTRISM MIGHT CAUSE FOR DISCRIMINATION OR NEGATIVE JUDGEMENTS ABOUT OTHERS. WHY ARE WE WORRIED ABOUT THINGS THAT WILL HURT OUR FEELINGS? LOYALTY TO THE SAME SOCIETY IS CREATED BY CONCEPTS SUCH AS ETHNOCENTRISM, SO IS IT REALLY THAT BAD? YOU MIGHT SIT AND ASK ME H0W IT IS BAD TO RECOGNIZE WHAT'S ACTUALLY BAD. PLEASE CONSIDER HOW LIBERALS GAVE US HORDES OF YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN WHO THINK TOLERANCE IS A VIRTUE. WELL, IT'S NOT. THERE IS A LINE THAT CANNOT BE CROSSED OF WHAT'S ETHICALLY TORLABILE. MY PREDICTION IS THAT WITH ALL THE BETA MALES AND SOY BOYS RISING IN THE COUNTRY, ONE DAY THERE WILL BE NONE LEFT IN OUR ARMED FORCES. THEN OUR CULTURE AND EVERYTHING WE HOLD DEAR WILL BE REPLACED.
