Rogers Letter Resets “Moral Compass” in Falmouth

December 15, 2013
In his letter to Cape Cod Online,  “Falmouth wind advocates lose their moral compass,” (12/14/13), James F. Rogers underscores the bias behind an earlier letter chiding Barnstable Superior Court’s Judge Muse.

When moral wisdom is lost” proclaims the headline of Ron Zweig’s latest “My View” (Dec. 11). Moral wisdom has been lost all right, but not by Judge Muse in his intelligent and balanced decision on the operation of Falmouth’s wind turbines.

Rather, it is Zweig and other Falmouth residents who have lost their moral compass, willing to sacrifice the well-being and health of their neighbors for the proverbial “thirty pieces of silver.” Zweig does not even have the decency to acknowledge the physical harm, documented by medical records, done to his fellow townspeople. Instead, he continually refers to “alleged” health effects, betraying his own alleged sense of morality.

In addition to being a resident of Woods Hole, it should be noted that Zweig owns his own wind turbine, a source of annoyance to some of his neighbors; and is a member of the board of Cape Light Compact, which through its subsidiary Cape and Vineyard Electric Cooperative, was as recently as two years ago eager to bring many more wind turbines — “more Falmouths” to Cape Cod.

    Mr. Rogers is correct. Anyone who’s brain is still connected to their heart and is not blindly in lockstep with a failed ideology knows this. What puzzles me is why the people have let this situation deteriorate to this extent. Don’t they realize that the cost of selfishness is self destruction?
