To the editor,

My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the Kurds. It is a sad day for the world.  As Timothy Snyder said in “On Tyranny,” professional ethics must guide us precisely when we are told that the situation is exceptional. Then there is no such thing as just following orders.

If members of the professions confuse their specific ethics with the emotions of the moment, however, they can find themselves saying and doing things that they might previously have thought unimaginable.
