why do villains always laugh 2012Why Do Villains Always Laugh?

Why is it that villains always seem to laugh in the movies? Is laughter to be associated with evil?
Are evil people happier than good people?

Laughter is supposed to be the best medicine. Laughter is supposed to be a sign of happiness.
Why is it so associated with evil?

On the other hand, good people are often depicted as either serious or weeping.
Should crying be a sign of holiness? Are good people not supposed to have a sense of humor?

I guess what we often see is just a stereotype depiction of villains.

Villains laugh not because they are happy, but because they want to appear happy.
They do not want to be in touch with their innermost feelings, because their feelings
would betray them, it would overwhelm them, if they have any feelings left at all.

Laughter is good. It heals us of many of our troubles. May we not think it’s the sole property
of villains, for true laughter comes from a clean heart, one who has learned how to cry,
and hence knows better how to really really laugh!

“Your companion for healing."

“The deepest wounds of the soul are healed only by compassion… People do not merely need to be clothed, they need to be embraced with love. A love that enters into their own fears and frailty, a love that suffers with them and stays with them through their darkest hour.”
