Associating with Evil

By Peter Darcy | On Jul 28, 2016 | No Comments | In Good-Evil

Associating with bad men, even for the purpose of defeating them, can make you vulnerable to the allure of evil. A sense of duty can be corrupted into self-righteousness, which can inspire a self-exemption from all laws, an embrace of power and the will to use it ruthlessly. Power is the central promise of evil, the dark light of that lamp, because nothing extinguishes the soul more quickly than pride in power.

[Dean Koontz, Deeply Odd (Bantam Books: New York, NY, 2014), p. 249.]
