freedom of indifference.

May 4, 2011

I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the whole idea of freedom and rejoicing in the death of an enemy.   Beyond the sheer thrill of the Jack Bauer/espionage-style  taking of the compound and killing of Bin Laden over the weekend, I just sort of feel un-settled.  Maybe it’s a good thing, a marker of morality.  All I know is that I still remember the fear and unsettling feelings that were experienced during the whole 9-11 experience in NYC back when I lived in Brooklyn – but killing one man who was behind an ideology that is followed by many doesn’t really make it even or right.

There’s no right or wrong answer here; it’s hard to define justice in this instance and probably in most.
