Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn offers some insight in his classic work, The Gulag Archipelago.

Ideology – that is what gives evildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others’ eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors. Thanks to ideology, the twentieth century was fated to experience evildoing on a scale calculated in the millions. This cannot be denied, nor passed over, nor suppressed. How, then, do we dare insist that evildoers do not exist? And who was it that destroyed these millions? Without evildoers there would have been no Archipelago.

3. The sickness of these people’s souls is beyond redemption, except from another dimension:

    #3. Not even going there! Proves #2.
    #5. Article is fundamentally wrong. There are in fact 4 types of “saag” and my preferred one which is “In the Bin”. Barf.

    #2: if I were a Christian – and he claims to be though presumably a Roman Catholic – I think I might make my stand over something other than a graven image.
