Comment: Perhaps

(See in situ)

In reply to comment: He who sins... (see in situ)


Perhaps, but the point here is a finer one, a new spin on the simple rebuke that the lesser evil is still an evil. Namely, that he who chooses the lesser evil, by choosing evil, abdicates the moral authority to proclaim what is a lesser evil. For one clearly has to refer to a (at least relative) good to be able to tell which of two evils is comparatively lesser.

Nothing earth-shattering, but a fine addition to one's the rhetorical arsenal. Guaranteed to break the i^H^H^H shut the yapper up at parties.
