    “The Banality of Evil: Modern philosophy shows that most atrocities are committed by normal people—not evil ones” https://qz.com/906101/modern-philosophy-shows-that-most-atrocities-are-committed-by-normal-people-not-evil-ones/ “We assume that evil arises out of contempt, misplaced pride, or even mental disorders, but we are wrong.
