We’re crazy if we think evil will be honest

I used to get really upset. I used to get really frustrated. I still do experience these things, but for different reasons now. I used to expect that evil would just be honest about itself. How naive of me. I used to get frustrated that evil would lie and say one thing and then do the exact opposite. What was I thinking?

I was thinking that evil would play by the rules because I try to play by the rules. I thought evil would do the things that someone reasonable would do. How silly of me.
