They're just sick in a way I don't think many understood

2017-01-08 05:15:48 UTC  

Instead of being merely greedy or lustful

2017-01-08 05:15:54 UTC  

IRONICALLY

2017-01-08 05:15:55 UTC  

There is a desire to destroy good

2017-01-08 05:15:59 UTC  

ARENDT COMES INTO PLAY HERE

2017-01-08 05:16:01 UTC  

THE BANALITY OF EVIL

2017-01-08 05:16:02 UTC  

YES

2017-01-08 05:16:04 UTC  

THEY WANT THIS:

2017-01-08 05:16:06 UTC  

"GOOD = BAD"

2017-01-08 05:16:09 UTC  

SO GOOD MUST DIE

2017-01-08 05:16:14 UTC  

AND INNOCENCE MUST DIE

2017-01-08 05:17:35 UTC  

But it could be explained by resentment

2017-01-08 05:17:47 UTC  

Not demons or anything supernatural

2017-01-08 05:18:04 UTC  

But the demon theory is very good as a model

2017-01-08 05:18:20 UTC  

Like newtonian physics

2017-01-08 05:18:30 UTC  

YES.

2017-01-08 05:18:32 UTC  

I THINK IT IS MERELY

2017-01-08 05:18:34 UTC  

BAD PSYCHOLOGY

2017-01-08 05:18:38 UTC  

CAUSED BY WEALTH AND DECAY

2017-01-08 05:18:43 UTC  

EVIL IS A GOOD METAPHOR

2017-01-08 05:18:49 UTC  

BECAUSE IN EVERY PERSON, IN EVERY MOMENT,

2017-01-08 05:18:54 UTC  

THERE IS TEMPTATION TO GIVE IN TO SOLIPSISM

2017-01-08 05:18:57 UTC  

WEAKNESS

2017-01-08 05:18:58 UTC  

ERROR

2017-01-08 05:19:00 UTC  

ARROGANCE

2017-01-08 05:19:02 UTC  

HUBRIS

2017-01-08 05:19:05 UTC  

MORE THAN A DESIRE TO DO EVIL

2017-01-08 05:19:10 UTC  

THE SECRET OF EVIL IS THAT IT IS NOT EVIL INTENT

2017-01-08 05:19:14 UTC  

MERELY A TOTAL LACK OF GOOD

2017-01-08 05:19:20 UTC  

FROM FEAR OF BEING INSUFFICIENT

2017-01-08 05:19:47 UTC  

PEOPLE IN THE GRIPS OF THIS ARE DEMONIC

2017-01-08 05:19:51 UTC  

AND APPEAR CONTROLLED

2017-01-08 05:19:53 UTC  

BECAUSE THEY ARE

2017-01-08 05:19:59 UTC  

BY RATIONALIZING IMPULSES

2017-01-08 05:20:02 UTC  

AND THEN CORRUPTING THEMSELVES

2017-01-08 05:20:08 UTC  

PICTURE OF DORIAN GREY TYPE STUFF

2017-01-08 05:20:18 UTC  

I ALWAYS THINK OF WICKHAM

2017-01-08 05:20:22 UTC  

FROM PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

2017-01-08 05:20:45 UTC  

Haven't read that yet 8/

2017-01-08 05:20:51 UTC  

Next book

2017-01-08 05:21:20 UTC  

The demon model is dangerous when it becomes fatalistic
