Just finished listening to last week’s episode of This American Life, “The Fix is In.” The episode is mostly a replay of a story from 2000 — a story that inspired the new movie The Informant!. Great storytelling, as usual from This American Life, and a great story, too. Now I want to see the movie.
It reminded me of one of my favorite quotes:
“The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed, and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voice.” – C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters (Preface)
