Venal Negatives versus Wart Negatives

Martin Amis quotes venal negatives -- like masturbation without your spouse versus wart negatives -- sanctioning third world nations (examples my own). The problem with America is we don't differentiate. But, we care about human rights; right? As much as George Bush cared about PETA. As Amis mentions, did we vote for the guy cuz he was human? Here meaning he said "fuck" and we considered him a heybra. Obama is not a heybra but he's an intellectual democrat but not as gadfly as Socrates. Obama won't be assainated until he is accused of corrupting the social order.
Play this game with me: go to a used bookstore find an intriguing quote and blog about it. We place too much emphasis on plagiarism but not enough stress on the appropriate use of ideas. Who doesn't want their ideas integrated? I know it sound idealistically Hegelian of me, but geez, it's much better than some bloggers' stab at originality.
