Chris Hedges’ stupid misuse of ‘radical evil’ concept…//To Overthrow Radical Evil, the Revolution Must Go Deep 

The theme of radical evil which comes from kant was injected into political discourse by chris hedges who should have been wary of that. It will turn the left into religious fanatics like the religious right. The legacy of the left, viz bolshevism, hardly counts for a big plus for the ‘good guys’.
The term is hard to evaluate and is hardly suitable for the left attacking the right: the term would apply across the board to all parties of the species, evidently, since the interpretation of the term is difficult.
