Reader’s comment: Doubly evil


In response to Laura Perrins: Facecrime 2019 – smiling while white, The Prez wrote:

There’s no one more evil than people who do evil things with the full blessing of their consciences.

That the far Left still think they’re the good guys shows just how great the human capacity for self-deception is.

Reminiscent of the C S Lewis quote about how robber barons occasionally rest from committing harm on others, but that self-proclaimed do-gooders are incessant in theirs.

Mozzy replied:

Hope this helps.

C S Lewis: ‘Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.’
