It is a sin to believe evil of others, but it is seldom a mistake.”   —   H. L. Mencken

(Never really cared much for the concepts of “sin” or “evil”.  Simplistic terms, designed to keep simple minds in line.  I’d like to think that mankind has moved on – dare I say evolved – to more rational ways of viewing the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I would have to agree, UR. These concepts are retrograde and sadly overused. We might do well to counter Mencken’s sentiment with the maxim of another Cryp luminary, La Rochefoucauld: “A quickness in believing evil without having sufficiently examined it is the effect of pride and laziness. We wish to find the guilty, and we do not wish to trouble ourselves in examining the crime.”
