Faced with such atrocities, we can often do little but reach for adjectives such as “barbarous”, “depraved” – even “evil”. But what is it that makes people act in such depraved, evil ways? “The sad truth,” Hannah Arendt wrote in The Life of the Mind, “is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.” Marc Sageman, once a CIA case officer in Afghanistan, now an academic and counter-terrorism consultant, makes a similar point about today’s jihadis. “It’s comforting to believe that these guys are different from us, because what they do is so evil,” he argues. “Unfortunately, they aren’t that different.” But jihadis are different. They are, after all, jihadis. How are people … [Read more...] about Why do Islamist groups in particular seem so much more sadistic, even evil?
