Dante’s Inferno Being Remodeled

JOHN RACHEL—As described in the first part of Dante’s epic poem the Divine Comedy, Hell currently consists of nine levels, or as Dante calls them ‘circles’.  Descending in order they are:  Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Heresy, Violence, Fraud, and Treachery.  Limbo is relatively benign, more of a park than a place of suffering, and is entirely reserved for the unbaptized and virtuous pagans.  The next eight circles offer eternal punishment for the host of sins which individually fall into the named categories.  There is no way to itemize them all here but as you would expect, the list includes everything from selfishness and hoarding to hedonism and beastiality, deception to murder and betrayal, theft to bigotry and idolatry.

This naked corporatism is Washington at its worst.” We know that if the people continue to mobilize and demand Internet justice, then Pai will not be the last word.
