En liten bok om ondska

Finns godhet? Finns ondska? Finns det i så fall onda och goda människor eller enbart onda och goda handlingar?

Ann Heberlein undersöker och ifrågasätter våra föreställningar om ondskan. Hur ska guy kunna förstå personer som Anders Eklund, Marc Dutroux och Josef Fritzl som fullt medvetande begått avskyvärda handlingar mot barn? Hur ska guy se på barnen som själva blir förövare: Harris och Klebold från Columbine excessive eller Mary Bell? Hur var den institutionaliserade ondskan vi mötte i Abu Ghraib, det forna Jugoslavien eller Förintelsen överhuvudtaget möjlig?

Och vad är det med männen egentligen? Varför begås de flesta onda handlingar av män?

Många frågor. males Ann Heberlein hjälper oss också att formulera några av svaren. Hon menar att ondskan inte alls är obegriplig. Den är inte heller ett eget väsen. Snarare har den sitt ursprung i ojämlikhet och utsatthet och den hämtar näring ur människors rädsla och maktlöshet.

Det enda obegripliga är vår ovilja att göra mer för att stoppa den.

It is not odd, then, that dissatisfaction with the international status quo, including the dualistincorporationist thesis, came to be asserted by international law writers as well as by many who were interested in international relations from a non-juridical point of view.

Fenwick, InlemtltionalLAw, p 64. THE I9TH AND 20TH CENTURIES 35 Diverging in an interesting way from all viewpoints mentioned thus far is that of the Greek pUblicist, JEAN SPIROPOULOS (1896), who observes that conflicting doctrines of international law are equally sound in that the experimenter is justified in choosing his own hypothesis and in delimiting his field as he may see fit 142. The only really sound way to determine the matter, he says, is to consult the "dominant opinion" 143, meaning that the essence of international law is to be sought in human attitudes regarding it rather than in the intrinsic merit of any doctrine or system per se.
