In every man sleeps a prophet, and when he wakes there is a little more evil in the world. - Emil Cioran

The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so
many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor
sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly
normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral
standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all
the atrocities put together.
