Solzhenitsyn on evil
« Reply #45 on: November 23, 2012, 05:04:05 am »
“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”

― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

When people tell you things, always assume that the exact opposite is a distinct possibility and hedge yourself accordingly.

People will always do the exact opposite of what you tell them, unless you allow for this ahead of time, in which case they will do as they damn well please.
