“Oh he’s actually a nice guy”
Alden Tan

That’s actually kind of a running joke with me- I’ll read about a mass shooter or corporate exec cutting workers wages and I will picture people, with queasy grins, saying “He’s a good guy”.

People defend who they know. It’s loyalty that blinds us. That being said, I would rather hang out with brilliant assholes than sweet folks who are doing nothing with their lives.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
