LA Times: The human side of Charlie Manson (Charlie?)
Manson, though, was no devil but a human being, as his death makes clear. I don’t say that to soften or absolve him. But I don’t believe in demons; people are frightening enough. Indeed, to accept Manson as a person, to see him through the filter of his humanity, is to acknowledge what we resist: that he was perhaps not so utterly different from the rest of us.
I would tend to disagree with the emphasized part.
This is the kind of stupid excrement you can only write if you have absolutely nothing left but moral relativism. Trump is Hitler, “Charlie” Manson was just a regular guy. Same thing, basically.
