On Elections and the Easy Evil of Hatred
December 5, 2016 from Family Research Council
This article appeared in The Christian Review on December 2. “All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy.Stay away from easy.” Scott Alexander Hollywood heavyweight Aaron Sorkin weighed in with gusto after the election. In a letter to his daughter published recently in Vanity Fair, Sorkin – clearly gob smacked by what he’d believed was an inconceivable outcome – proclaimed, “The Klan won last night. White nationalists. Sexists, racists and buffoons…Hate was given hope. Abject dumbness was glamorized…” In the letter, Sorkin re-invigorates the enraged rhetoric of both millennials and the
