Sam Harris & Noam Chomsky Trade Nasty Emails Until A Winner Emerges...

Here, from The Young Turks:

Chomsky says this all the time in his writings: it is an elementary moral truism that one is responsible for the foreseeable consequences of his actions. "Intent" is totally meaningless when you KNOW FOR A FACT that you're going to kill lots of people in the course of trying to do something else. You're killing lots of people, and you know you're killing lots of people, which makes you responsible.

That seems pretty irrefutable, pretty rock solid. Why don't many Americans seem to understand that?
