The Good

"It's almost a sort of "reverse-tautology": the close repetition of a pair of simple words ("the good") can often blind their enormous import. And, it presents a concept so opposite the everyday experience of American history that most find it incredible on its face: nothing could possibly be that completely evil. Many people can understand "envy", but very few are psychologically equipped to understand it raised to the level of ideology in action in global affairs, across decades."
Billy Beck at his best.
