"Most of the harm in the world is done by good people,

and not by accident, lapse, or omission. It is the result of their deliberate actions, long persevered in,
which they hold to be motivated by high ideals toward virtuous ends... ...when millions are slaughtered, when torture is practiced, starvation enforced, oppression made a policy, as at present over a large part of the world, and as it has often been in the past, it must be at the behest of very many good people, and even by their direct action, for what they consider a worthy object." The God of the Machine (Library of Conservative Thought)

Your Say

There's a horrific convergence of evil when a well-meaning person is combined with ignorance and an arrogance that makes them willing to not just ignore people who disagree but demonize them and use power to silence them. We've seen it again and again, and every time it results in the kind of satanic terrors that keep people awake at night hoping it never happens again.

Its jut not well meaning people, and its not just ignorance, its the kind of people who'll take that and ram it down everyone's throats for their own good.
