That Austrian dungeon thing  
I've been trying to wrap my brain around that horror in Austria. You just ask yourself, what kind of a person is that? How does that happen?
And it all meant this: that there are hardly any excesses of the most crazed psychopath that cannot easily be duplicated by a normal, kindly family man who just comes in to work every day and has a job to do.

Terry Pratchett. Small Gods

Austria. Abu Ghraib. The Nazis. It kind of explains them all.
