Worthlessness of World Opinion

Dennis Prager has a good column on the immorality of "world opinion".
If you are ever morally confused about a major world issue, here is a rule that is almost never violated: Whenever you hear that "world opinion" holds a view, assume it is morally wrong.

And here is a related rule if your religious or national or ethnic group ever suffers horrific persecution: "World opinion" will never do a thing for you. Never.

"World opinion" has little or nothing to say about the world's greatest evils and regularly condemns those who fight evil.

The whole thing is well worth the read. He lists all the great horrors about which the world was apathetic as a nice contrast to the insignificance of the incidents "world opinion" gets panties wadded over.

And he sets forth four reasons for all this. TV News and journalistic cowardice are the biggest factors.
