Then suppose that something turns up suggesting that the story might not be quite true, or not quite so bad as it was made out. is one's first feeling, 'Thank God, even they aren't quite so bad as that,‘ or is it a feeling of disappointment, and even a determination to cling to the first story for the sheer pleasure of thinking your enemies are as bad as possible? if it is the second then it is, I am afraid, the first step in a process which, it followed to the end, will make us into devils" CS.
