Scaling the evil??

Posted by Farmer on May 19, 2008 at 07:19:43

I have thought about it a lot & have not really looked into any websites or books covering this theme & subject...I know, that e.g many concentration camp survivors often couldn't even talk about the subject, their sufferings & experiences, remaining even totally silent towards their loved ones...Whether you have the inquisition...persecution & torture for various religious and political reasons...or real genocide
of minorities...all that suffering is hard to put into words or "any scale".

If we take the sufferings of the SGAs, I have also no idea really where to put them & may be it's even an unallowed train of thought...because you cannot really "grade" something like that...may be...On the other hand, I often thought, that in my personal life it helped me to feel better, if I learned from reading people's
"misfortunes", how bad they had it & I didn't have to go through something like that.

Here is something from Natascha Kampusch, which
kind of confirms, what I was thinking all the while & may be there is something like a certain
scale for evilness (taken from Times of India):

BERLIN: Natascha Kampusch, the Austrian girl kept captive in a cellar for eight years, said Amstetten incest father Joseph Fritzl is a "liar" for saying he loves his family, in comments published on Thursday.

"What he is now saying to the media makes me angry. This man is a huge egotist. He doesn't care about other people. He must have known that he was doing wrong," Kampusch told German magazine Bunte in an interview to be published in full later this week.

"It is also outrageous that he now claims he loves his wife and his daughter! He is lying! Josef Fritzl only loves himself. What he has done is sick," said 20 year-old Kampusch.

"In my case you wonder how a total stranger can possible take a child away from its parents and to put a whole family through such severe trauma.

But this Fritzl did that to his own child, to his own family! That is even more unbelievable," she added.

Fritzl, 73, admitted on April 28 having kept his daughter Elisabeth prisoner in a high-tech underground dungeon for 24 years in the Austrian town of Amstetten and fathering seven children with her, according to police.

He is currently in custody. Kampusch was kidnapped aged 10 and kept prisoner by Wolfgang Priklopil until her escape in August 2006. Priklopil killed himself the same day. She has donated 25,000 euros (39,000 dollars) to Elizabeth Fritzl, now 42, and her children and told Bunte she would like to meet and help them.
