Scapegoats in the Culture War

Excellent article on disproportionality of response by various internet lynch mobs.

At the same time it is hard not to enjoy Click's suffering from her own methods getting used on her.

It's like when the CIA goes and tortures some actual terrorists.

On the one hand, you say it's wrong and it's worrisome because once the gov't starts torturing anyone eventually the boundaries get thinner and thinner and sooner or later they might even find reason to torture anyone.

On the other hand, you sure don't feel bad for the particular terrorist who got tortured.

I read an article on this a few weeks ago. Pretty damning.
