“Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans.”
A far left wing American couple was killed in an Islamic State-claimed terrorist attack last month while on a cycling trip around the world.
Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, Far left extremists who were both in their late 20s, last year quit their office jobs in Washington, DC, to go on the journey. Austin, a vegan who worked for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Geoghegan, a vegetarian who worked in the Georgetown University admissions office, decided that they’re were wasting their lives working.
“I’ve grown tired of spending the best hours of my day in front of a glowing rectangle, of coloring the best years of my life in swaths of grey and beige,” Austin wrote on his blog before he quit. “I’ve missed too many sunsets while my back was turned. Too many thunderstorms went unwatched, too many gentle breezes unnoticed.”
The left wingers documented their year-long journey on Instagram and on a joint blog. As The New York Times put it, they shared “the openheartedness they wanted to embody and the acts of kindness reciprocated by strangers.”
“You read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place,” Austin wrote.
“People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil.”
“I don’t buy it,” he continued. “Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own… By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind.”
However, Austin and Geoghegan’s misguided trip came to a tragic and gruesome end when they got to Tajikistan, a country with a known Islamic terrorist presence. They were riding their bikes through the country on July 29 when a car rammed them, according to CBS News. Five Muslim men got out of the car and stabbed the white couple to death along with two European cyclists, one from Switzerland and the other from the Netherlands.
Two days later, ISIS released a video showing the same Muslim men sitting in front of the black ISIS flag. They looked at the camera and vowed to kill “disbelievers,” according to The New York Times.
Fellow far left extremist , will no doubt view Austin and Geoghegan as martyrs in the struggle for a better world, or simply as unfortunate. Ever blind to the dangers their perverted ideologies breed.
