In the wake of the Buffalo racist killings, Joe Biden says evil will not win.
Joe Biden cannot change human nature by means of emotional speeches or even by means of sound public policy.
More likely, the president does not intend to work on the problem of evil actions, evil words or even evil thoughts. He is working on winning over “evil” votes that could be cast for the other party. That is why he showed up in Buffalo for the photo op in the first place.
Joe can’t control the court or the Congress. He can’t control Putin and he can’t control the American people.
Mr. Biden ought to remind people that it is their responsibility, not his, to end hate and violence.
Edmund Burke said evil triumphs only when good men do nothing. Apparently good men and women aren’t doing much today at all.
