17. No, NOT desperate. I won't claim they're all hateful thugs,

but way too many have to be. More specifically, does anyone doubt that a significant number drawn to this work are the type of conservative who both are hostile to "outsiders" and will just follow orders, including ones that only hateful thugs would?

I have some sympathy for those who are invested in a career that would require significant sacrifice to abandon, but not much. I've sacrificed economic wellbeing before, for other reasons, and I would not work in ICE under this administration.

A scholar who's studied evil and movements that become evil for 40 years offered a simple guideline for people to identify them, probably not verbatim but close to: Watch out for mean people.
