What worries me tonight? There’s an ethical dilemma soon to come over our horizon.
Over the next 10 days or so, our Country and the States that make up our Country are going to be asking members of our National Guard to defend the National and State Capitols and other government buildings and people from members of extremist groups wanting to do damage to our Democracy.
The dilemma that exists here is that those National Guard members may be defending those Capitols, people, and other government buildings from their brothers, sisters, dads, moms, or neighbors. Maybe, they might be defending against those they met and associated with just last week. Heck, the confrontation could also place husbands and wives on opposite sides
In fact, the extremist may also find themselves in the same set of circumstances of which I speak above.
Things have changed in our Country.
Family associations, friendly associations, and casual associations may be impacted for years and generations to come.
Our society needs to think about this—thoughtfully and intelligently think about this.
