Good Is The New Evil

I just finished reading “Bis zur letzten Stunde,” the memoirs of Traudl Junge. Junge was Hitler’s secretary during that last two and a half years of World War II. It’s a very interesting book, but probably only if you speak German. If you don’t, not so much. But one thing that stood out in my mind, for some reason, is that near the end of their lives, both Adolf Hitler and Elvis Presley were on something like 20 different kinds of medication that were prescribed to them by a series of quack doctors. So we’ve finally found the common link between pure good and pure evil. In the end, maybe all the big players for both sides are nothing more than compulsive pill poppers.
