Re: Do not pick up illegal migrants in the Med!
This thread should have started with a reminder of the ethical duty to render assistance to those in distress through the means one has at ones' disposal. We could have positively listed the things one could do to render aid and nurtured the moral impulses of our community. Instead, the OP led off with an outlier story about pirates and a legally/factually incorrect designation of refugees as "illegal migrants". Context and framing matter, so we got what we got.
