Without Objective Morality, If You Do It, It’s Wrong; But If I Do It, It’s Right

Left to themselves, human beings can in a matter of  minutes justify the incineration of populated cities, the mass deportation—accompanied by slaughter, disease, and starvation—of inconvenient people, and the mass murder of the unborn.  I have heard people who believe themselves to be good defend all these things and convince themselves as well as others.  Quite often the same people will condemn similar actions committed by different countries, often with great vigor.

Peter Hitchens, The Rage Against God, pg.141-142
