Evil of colossal magnitude

The second U.S. President John Adams condemned slavery in 1812 by stating it was an evil of colossal magnitude, but evil, years later, took on a new meaning.  In the days and weeks after the 9/11/2001 attacks, we heard the 43rd President, George W. Bush, appropriate the term almost like a mantra, with speeches announcing “a campaign against evil-doers,” to “rid the world of evil-doers,” and to “hold the evil-doers accountable.”  “Civilized people around the world denounce the evil-doers who devised and executed these terrible attacks.”  Bush used the term “axis of evil” in his State of the Union address in January 2002 to include Iran, Iraq, and North Korea.  I think this sticker collected in 2006 points the evil finger back at G.W.B.
