Sighting across the grain

July 30, 2015

hemmingways_lionToo many people mistake their own squeamishness for a moral sense, and run with every cause of their cult or clan. Though that could be in reference to the controversy over Planned Parenthood making fetal tissues available for medical research, I am thinking of the furor over the killing of a lion for sport. At the height of that, I am glad to see someone wrote a defense of trophy hunting.

The rich are an easy target. I’m less concerned with their hobbies, than I am with the cultural lens that wealth creates.

Update: The view from Zimbabwe.

Update 2: My outrage is better than your outrage.
