Hypocrites are the worst. But nations aren't necessarily the same as people.
I look forward to reading your future posts on Chomsky's problematic analysis
Betrayal is in the eye of the beholder. Did the Bani Qurayza Jews betray Mohammad, or did he betray them? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invasion_of_Banu_Qurayza
Hypocrisy is applying one moral standard to one actor and a different moral standard to another actor. Chomsky is the ultimate hypocrite because he treats the US overly harshly while completely excusing the horrors of the Soviet and Chinese communist mass murderers. What is missing from progressives' criticism of the US is comparison *across space and time*. Zoom out and it is clear that America, warts and all, is a force for good.
I think all human beings are hypocrites be it as life, work, politics, etc. We are imperfect. I enjoyed a few years ago listening to the Harris podcast where Sam Harris asked Shadi Hamid as to whether he believes in objective moral truth. I forget Dr. Hamid's answer. We live in a cruel, imperfect and unjust world.
Are their universal standards, objective truths that exist and can be equally and fairly applied? are there any political thinkers in the world that are fair, balanced and objective? For eg, are we going to demand and ask for liberal values like reason, science, rule of law, equal rights, democracy and separation of religion and state for countries like the US, Israel, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, China, France, etc? Why would we demand liberal values in one country but not another country, or as to one political ideology but not another, like Zionism, political Islam, Christian Right, Hindu nationalism, etc? Our disparate and subjective views on politics make us hypocrites and have righteous minds (Jonathan Haidt's book)
