They’re Both Evil

August 2nd, 2016

When I suggest that Clinton and Trump are both evil, I do mean this literally.

By that logic, every president is evil

Well, yeah, I was getting to that.

And by that logic, you’re evil and I’m evil and we’re all evil

Nope (or, technically, sure, but now it’s a matter of degree).

I’m sure you’ve done some bad things and some wrong thing in your life; we all have, but evil is not the same as those. You may have even done some evil things, again, most of us probably have.

But the power wielded by a President is orders of magnitude greater, and thus affords them the opportunity to do many times more evil. It’s absurd to equivocate the moral failings of e.g., cheating on a girlfriend or an exam in high school with the moral failings of bombing children in Syria, overthrowing another country’s government, continuing the abomination that is the war on drugs, mass surveillance of US citizens, confiscation of properties, etc.

Anyone who intends to do the things that they intend to do and on the scale which they are capable of doing them is manifestly and irrevocably evil.
