You also would be a good advocate for the devil.

Jefferson and Goldwater never killed anyone to my knowledge. Mandela did kill, like the other totalitarians have killed. You brush this aside without a second thought. You would argue that the devil is not always bad. He was my friend sometimes so that doesn't make him all bad either. Chairman Mao helped people sometimes also. He was not pure evil, correct? Absolutism versus relativism. Your can justify anything with thinking like that.
