Thread: Does Evil have a name?

    Does Evil have a name?

    I wonder how many on this board, like me, believe that evil has a name? I don't believe that evil acts are the result of poor potty training, poverty, socoi-economic class or any of the other factors that modern sociologists put forth. I believe that evil exists and has a name and an agenda. I believe that evil seeks out the feeble-minded and the down-trodden and plays upon their fears and/or jealousy and goads them into their heinous acts. I also believe that evil tends to avoid the good who are prepared to defeat it. I believe this is one reason that so few CCW holders are targets of criminals. All too often the mass murderers seem to target the locations where everyone is unarmed. I know that often this is because the places that are targeted are off-limits to firearms - even for CCW holders - but it seems that even in those places where firearms are allowed no good guys are around with a gun when the sh&^ hits the fan. It seems like there is a knowledge of where/when to strike. For us this is good because it means if we're prepared we'll never be in a situation where we need to use force. Thoughts?

    Hey GlockFan: Don't you think that AvidshooterTX really has a specific answer to his question and you just reiterated it for him? I consider myself a student of history and have read a lot in my 68 years. I truly believe that we are witnessing the rise of a dangerous dictatorship in this country akin to Hitler's Germany with Acorn and Seiu brownshirts leading the charge. To me the key is November, 2010. Either the elections are held correctly and lawfully and throw out enough dems in Congress that effectively stalll and end this shithead's power grab or, as Rahm Emmanuel says, there is a "crisis" that necessitates action--essentially upsetting any lawful and real election in 2010. If that happens baby, grease your guns--we're in for a rocky road to freedom. Watching the State of the Union speech, I heard this shithead diss and dismiss the Supreme Court and Congress literally in 2 sentences. He is a demagogue and on his way to becoming a dictator. It's just a question of whether he ignores our democracy, shows his full true face, dismisses Congress, and decides who goes to which labor camps in Idaho.

    I know they elected "him" but at this point I have to have faith in my fellow Americans. They will wake up and finally "get it"! The real danger is will they wake up and "get it" in time!!???

  6. I posted something like this previously. A few years ago, I attended a mental health conference. The keynote speaker's presentation was entitled "The Psychology of Evil". The premise was that today's counselors and mental health professionals attempt to give a diagnostic label to almost every behavior and every person they are asked to evaluate and that sometimes there is no other rationale other than the person is "just evil". By giving some of the horrible people a diagnosis, I believe it tends to reduce their responsbility for their action in the eyes of the general public. Thankfully there is the diagnosis of sociopath and psychopath which helps to identify the ones that are the worse.

    I don't think you're alone in your thinking, KelCarry. I just can't help but wonder, when/if it actually DOES "hit the fan", how many of us are up to the task of standing up, much less standing tall. Like combat, I guess you really never know until you're staring into the eyes of inevitability and you have to make the choice. Others have, and we haven't all fully embraced those lessons: Ruby Ridge . . . Waco . . . should serve as examples to us all of what potentially exists for any of us somewhere down the road.

    I truly believe and my retired neighbor, who was a Colonel assigned to the Pentagon, also believes that today's
    armed forces' leaders (the generals etc) are basically political wusses who will not venture outside of the norm regardless of what this shithead in the white house does. Just look at Ft. Hood, where up and down the line, they did not dare question who the schmuck was even though the evidence was as plain as day. If my doomsday scenario comes true and the shithead and the Rahm Emmanuels have a "crisis" in time for the Nov 2010 elections and act on it contrary to our normal rule of law and the Constitution, we have to hope that there are armed forces regulars who will not go along with the wusses in charge and act accordingly. If no one in the armed forces will act, it will become more of a local matter ie police, national guard etc. If everyone goes lockstep with the shithead, we cannot win against those odds unless somehow or somewhere at sometime they back down from the populace and their mass demonstrations.History is a proven source of real "what if" and as I have said, my sad opinion is that we are close to Germany in the 30's as hitler and the nazis began their rise and we are close to Russia in the teens, when lenin and the communists began their rise. I truly believe the answer will lie in the Nov 2010 elections IF the voters ballot a different change from the one the shithead wants. If they vote lockstep with the shithead, after all that has and will happen during this year, we are finished as a prosperous nation, we will become a socialist country, and, for all intents and purposes, will be "owned" by China without them even firing a shot.

    What kelcarry said, if we get a chance to vote and the voters do not kick out the progressives and RINO's we are doomed. Keeping these people in power is verifying that the constitution is just a piece of paper that means nothing.
