Was Hitler evil?

"Was Hitler evil?


Most White Americans will say yes: he killed 6 million Jews in the Holocaust! But to avoid any double standard we should apply the same moral reasoning White Americans apply to their own history."

I don't think the word 'evil' is helpful because that is a religious term.  


Would we say that someone born as a psychopath is evil? I suppose if one is religious they would say that.  


Psychopaths lack the neurophysiological “hardwiring” that enables them to care about people's feelings. 


Psychopathy affects approximately 1 percent of the United States general population and 20 percent to 30 percent of the male and female U.S. prison population. 

The danger in every community and nation is that it only takes one psychopath to get into a position of power (or get their hands on a gun) to end up doing massive harm.

We just had a similar talk at home with the kids while watching "Who Do You Think You Are?" (The episode with Chelsea Handler serching her German & Jewish family background.)

Faith-based schools may ‘fuel racism’

Racism could be fuelled by allowing some schools to turn away children on religious grounds, a policy which an integration group claims is already creating social divisions.

It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it. More than living simply, more than living 'green', thrifty grandmas knew the importance of the 'economics' in Home Economics. The history of home ec, lessons in thrift, practical tips and ideas from the past focused on sustainability for families and out planet. Companion to
