Look At It This Way (#LAITW)

Principles

Evil

by on Oct.01, 2014, under Principles, Truisms

A good thing to establish at the outset of a political discussion is which participants believe in evil and which don’t. To the extent that someone does not believe in evil, there is little progress to be made for fighting evil.

Evil is not comforted by compassion or caring. It’s not soothed by politically correct speech. It is not quieted by how much you care. It is not turned back with the use of aggressive words.

This applies equally well to man-made evil (e.g. terrorists) and nature’s evils (e.g. ebola).

You have to kill it or contain it with whatever tools can be brought to bear. As quickly and as thoroughly as you possibly can.
