“Not to punish evil is equivalent to authorizing it.”
Leonardo da Vinci
I actually saw this quote in a post by Paula B, at The Temenos Journey, titled “The Evil of Standing By And Doing Nothing.” It’s an excellent post and well worth the read.
Leonardo da Vinci was the epitome of a renaissance man: an inventor, artist, painter, sculptor, architect, scientist, mathematician, engineer, botanist, geologist, astronomer, and paleontologist.
His centuries-old sentiment was remarkably prescient for today’s day and age. And as for those Republicans in Congress and in Donald Trump’s administration who do and say nothing as they watch Trump fiddle (tweet) while the country and the world burns, they are not only enabling his evil, they are authorizing it.
It is necessary and appropriate to impeach Donald Trump now.
