Spontaneous Philosophical Tea Party™
It’s a SPONTANEOUS philosophical tea party™!
A lot of the time when people do nasty things they have justifications in their minds for why what they’re doing is the right thing to do. For instance, if you burn a witch at stake you probably think you’re doing it to protect many more people.
If we assume that to be evil you have to be aware of the evilness of your actions and still follow through with it, is it possible that people that are incapable of seeing the logical flaws in their justifications can be evil?
Put another way, can you be both stupid and evil?
