Arendt and evil

There are two interesting posts with comment threads on 'A Fistful of Euros'. One here on Hannah Arendt on the banality of evil, and one here by the same person, continuing the argument.

Are evil people 'normal'? Are they 'banal' (not the same thing of course)? The key question, for me at least, is 'are they like us?'.
