Evil in Our Midst

I do think it’s difficult for decent people to truly grasp immoral, evil behavior, even when it’s happening right in front of them. But it’s obvious that some Americans have been conditioned to believe evil looks a certain way, acts a particular way and is a characteristic reserved primarily for the “other.”

They seem unable to recognize evil behavior when it’s coming from someone looks like them, acts like them … is one of them.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ~ Edmund Burke

Rule of Law

As rich as the current administration’s antics are for mining leadership lessons on what NOT to do, I find too much of the negativity is corrosive to my soul. So I’m currently on a sabbatical from the news.

Or at least I was until #45 declared himself above the law.

“When the President does it, that means that it’s not illegal.” ~ Richard M. Nixon, the only U.S. president to resign to avoid impeachment and removal from office

“Rule of law implies that every person is subject to the law, including people who are lawmakers, law enforcement officials, and judges. In this sense, it stands in contrast to an autocracy, dictatorship, or oligarchy where the rulers are held above the law.” ~ Wikipedia
