"This was not a protest, this was a well-organized insurrection against our country that was organized by Donald Trump."

Said Representative Jim McGovern, Democrat of Massachusetts, Chair of the House Rules Committee, opening the debate this morning on the Article of Impeachment, quoted in "The House begins debating impeachment charge against Trump." (NYT). McGovern asserted that he looked into some people's eyes and "saw evil." I'm seeing the live vote embedded at the Times, and it is strictly along party lines... ... even though the text of the article says "Republicans were fracturing over the vote." And:Sena...

How to defend genocidal dictators, serial killers, and other evil people with conservative FACTS and LOGIC

Australian comedian Greg Larsen posted a challenge on Twitter: give him the name of someone who is universally agreed upon to be evil, and he'll figure out how Fox News or Ben Shapiro or any other Right Wing pundit would defend them. The results are bleakly hilarious, if not painfully accurate. Here are a few of my favorites: So now we are just poisoning people we don't like? Sure he was young and when you're a teen you do some rebellious stuff but boys will be boys. Does that ...

As We Lead in the Face of Evil

They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to save you and rescue you. This is the Lord’s declaration. I will rescue you from the power of evil people and redeem you from the grasp of the ruthless. Jeremiah 15:20-21 (CSB) All of us are leading in some capacity right now. For some of us, our circle of influence might be our families or our children. For others, it might extend to our communities or our churches or online through our words and images.

From ‘Evil’ to ‘Servant’ and ‘Defending Jacob,’ Writers Are Leaving Room for the Audience to Be Author

“The Killing” may have been ahead of its time. Veena Sud’s crime drama, which first ran on AMC and was later picked up by Netflix, delivered a 13-episode first season in 2011 that declined to solve the central mystery of who killed small-town teen Rosie Larsen (Katie Findlay). When the season ended that June, there […]

What did Hannah Arendt really mean by the banality of evil?

Can one do evil without being evil? This was the puzzling question that the philosopher Hannah Arendt grappled with when she reported for The New Yorker in 1961 on the war crimes trial of Adolph Eichmann, the Nazi operative responsible for organising the transportation of millions of Jews and others to various concentration camps in support of the Nazi's Final Solution.Arendt found Eichmann an ordinary, rather bland, bureaucrat, who in her words, was 'neither perverted nor sadistic', but 'terrif...

Why are some psychopaths 'successful'? It may depend on one personality trait

Researchers have long struggled to explain the stark differences in life outcomes of psychopaths.A new study suggests that the personality trait conscientiousness helps psychopaths develop impulse-control skills over time.However, this process seems to apply only to individuals who score high in certain psychopathic traits. What explains the stark differences in the life outcomes of psychopaths? Consider that one in five CEOs is a psychopath. That same rate also applies to prisoners. Of course,...

‘He Is Without Morality And Empathy’: Michael Emerson On Leland Townsend & CBS’s ‘EVIL’

What are the chances that God is actually good?

In his book, Is a Good God Logically Possible?, James Sterba investigates the role of evil. Sterba contends that if God is all-powerful then he'd be able to stop evil from occurring in the world. God's inability (or unwillingness) to stop evil should make us question his role, or even his existence. Why does God allow evil to happen? This question has been at the heart of Western religious philosophy since the dawn of monotheism. The very term and concept of God has long divided humans. Is he ...

10 quotes that prove humanity is absurd

Absurdism is the philosophical school that recognizes the tension between meaning and a meaningless universe. Camus and Kierkegaard wrote extensively on the topic, though modern thinkers continue to contribute to the literature of the Absurd. In a politically divided time, the Absurd has come to the forefront of national discussion. None Like many Angelenos, last week I spent a fair amount of time on the LAFD's Twitter feed.
