The Devil and Ross Douthat

A recent piece by New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, "The Covington Scissor," presents a dialogue between him and a mysterious Voice, which he finds "devilish," though it claims to be his conscience, and which culminates in "dark laughter, echoing away into an abyss."

It is "a statement, an idea or a scenario that's somehow perfectly calibrated to tear people apart--not just by generating disagreement, but by generating total incredulity that somebody could possibly disagree with your interpretation of the controversy, followed by escalating fury and paranoia and polarization, until the debate seems like a completely existential, win-or-perish fight."
