Led by their nose; excited by cruelty

Humans have this tendency to want to stick their nose where it doesn't belong. And, then when their nose discovers something, as it always will, they want to meddle.

That's what spawns government, but it's not the worst of it.

Humans are also capable of thinking up all sorts of creative cruelties and evil. One defining characteristic of the State is that those cruel and evil practices are almost always incorporated into it. This is how they choose to meddle, if they can get away with it.

Of course, then, as long as those things are done by people acting on behalf of the State, the cruel and evil nature of the acts are ignored. The pretense can be that those things-- in that context-- are righteous.

They aren't.

And it doesn't matter if it is something that was done hundreds of years ago, but which is no longer accepted, or something the evil bullies at the Pentagon thought up last year. Evil is evil, torture is torture. It can't be sanctified even if it "works". It turn you into a bad guy, even if your victim is also a bad guy. I want bad guys to always lose.

  1. One of the greatest superstitions- that the state can morally sanctify evil.

  2. And the root of that belief.....that good ends can be advanced or accomplished by the practice of evil means; by any group or individual.
