The evil in the hearts of men

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Trump’s pres­i­dency

In light of the Que­bec tragedy I was en­cour­aged to read in The Spec­ta­tor that for­mer gov­er­nor gen­eral Adrienne Clark­son told those at­tend­ing a ci­ti­zen­ship ceremony in Ottawa that Canada is in dan­ger of be­ing in­flu­enced by what is hap­pen­ing south of the bor­der. Due to a lack of me­dia fron­tiers we are in­doc­tri­nated by the ug­li­ness and ap­palling mes­sages bom­bard­ing us.

In the opin­ion sec­tion, John Roe hit the nail on the head with his ar­ti­cle, “Tak­ing on Amer­ica’s bully.” Bul­lies get their way be­cause no one is pre­pared to rock the boat. They will iso­late and intimidate while oth­ers just watch silently, hop­ing that if they do noth­ing, the bully will leave them alone (Europe, 1930s).

In the Go sec­tion, Sh­eryl Nadler sees the Mus­lims and im­mi­grants as scape­goats, the way the Jews were in Hitler’s Ger­many. She says that we must never for­get what evil lurks in the hearts of men, in­clud­ing the 63 mil­lion who voted for Trump. Robert J. Wil­liamson. Hamil­ton
