This could be argued for any act against mankind. Whether it be criminal, or just a rule imposed for the "greater good". You know what they say
about absolute power. Could this not be applied to any act, that goes beyond a modicum of humanity?
Actually, no... I'm not being the least bit argumentative here. It's confusion of events we're watching. There are plenty of reality shows these days
that cover from inside the U.S. Prison system. MSNBC makes quite a side line of it in their programming. One aspect of that is the chance to see how
these guys actually are outside a setting they are really trying to look nice and proper in to be found innocent or something. They come across to me
as devoid of some core aspects of humanity perhaps, like compassion...but still intelligent and mentally sharp people. Evil doesn't mean space case,
In the Aurora case, it's so much more than that, it stands alone for it's stark example. This wasn't a guy who was just 'kinda bright'. He was in the
final stages of an advanced degree in a very challenging field. I can't imagine stupidity or simple minded ever being used to describe someone at the
level he was, before becoming what he did.
Yet.....if we believe all sources who insist his court appearances were NOT drugged....That high order of intelligence he once possessed and helped
him turn his apartment into a giant I.E.D.? Well.. The lights are on but no one's home. It's not amusing, either. It's deeply disturbing to me,
