We used to reserve words like “evil” for men like Hitler and Stalin. Now we freely tag people like Biden, Obama and Pelosi with it. I am not sure if this reflects a deep moral confusion, a total absence of historical knowledge, or both. Probably the latter. Regardless, I see the word evil thrown around so cavalierly these days that I can no longer take those who use it too casually seriously.
