Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" "My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many."

 

Mark   5:9

 

"What is strange here that there are so many dishonorable people. Even an evildoer can still retain a sense of honor   but here we have   a lot of reasonably good people who perform dishonorable acts exclusively due to the goodness of their hearts..'

 

F. Dostoevsky. Winter Notes On   Summer   Travel Abroad Impressions

 

There is a   rather   well- known   insurance commercial in which   a man of a   sinister appearance   presents himself as a   force of nature or   some other mayhem from which the insurance   could protect. It would be advisable   for such man to appear   on the screens of our TVs,   right now, on the infamous anniversary of the Iraq carnage and say:

 

- I am your dishonor. No insurance protects from that.

 

Those were the years of the triumph of dishonor.   Americans are not   honorable people anyway; they   do not have much of an experience when a nation has to be honorable to survive.   On the   other hand, dishonor    and hypocrisy are two evil sisters who like   intertwined twins can exist only together. As soon as hypocrisy had been a part of the American character   for a very long time, dishonor was not that far whenever it   was needed. It presented itself   in full force in Vietnam and culminated during the Iraqi pogrom.
