1. While there may not be a debate over how to recognize 'evil,' there appears to be a huge degree of evil itself in attempting to excuse evil. There are apologists for evil whose motives need be questioned. 2. Case in point: a. "The Wendy's massacre was a mass murder that took place in a Wendy's fast-food restaurant at 40-12 Main Street in Flushing, Queens, New York City, New York, on May 24, 2000. Seven employees were shot in the head and five of them died." Wendy's massacre - Wikipedia b. "....Jaquione Johnson, was the second survivor to take the witness stand and recount, in harrowing detail, the hellish events in the basement of the Wendy's in Flushing on May 24, 2000. Mr. Johnson, 20, who was shot in the top of his head and spent months recovering in a rehabilitation facility, testified to seeing much more than the other survivor, Patrick Castro, who said during his testimony on Wednesday that the gunmen covered his eyes with duct tape. Mr. Castro said he could hear screams and gunshots, but was unable to see what was happening inside a walk-in refrigerator where the gunmen held seven bound and gagged employees before shooting them." Second Survivor of Wendy's Massacre Tells of Seeing Killings 3. "A writer on the World Socialist website...[claimed] the Wendy's murders were neither gratuitous nor evil,...but rather reflected the poverty, injustice, and frustration of American society.... Here is the moral mirror-work that yields relativism. An Unjust society's poverty (supposedly) clears the Wendy's killers, or mitigates their guilt. Society is responsible, not the individual criminals. ...a misguided ideological effort to explain away acts that originate not in the injustices of a social system but elsewhere- in viciousness and stupidity and indifference to life..." Lance Morrow, "Evil: An Investigation," p. 91-92 4. There are two possible sources that may qualify as able to judge 'misguided ideological' worldviews: one is the Founder's view, the Judeo-Christian faith, ...and the other is the faiths of Marx and Hegel, Communism, and Liberalism. Ned Ryun: "Liberals are acting horrified at "the end result of the conditioning that they have received for years....this is a culture that the Left created....some of us [conservatives] have rejected that culture, we actually believe in self-discipline, we actually believe in virtue, ... ...now they want to bestow (?) that sort of behavior on all men...it didn't come from the Right, it was created by the Left....."

Discussing his article "In Defense of Masculinity" Those that excuse evil, facilitate it...... ....and make certain that it continues.
