• The greater the good that people claim to be, the greater the evil they will do in the name of good.
• The more idealistic the political system in theory, the more tyrannical the political system will be in practice.
• There is no better hiding place for evil than positions and roles that are designated as representing the good.
• If you want to do evil and be accepted, approved, and rewarded for it by society, then do your evil in the name of good.

• The favorite excuses for doing evil: (1) you are doing evil by authority of the good; (2) you are doing evil for a good cause; (3) you are doing evil to prevent greater evil; (4) you are doing evil because evil was done to you.
