    That point of view in of itself isn't necessarily a contributor for the evil actions of others.

    As long as the bad deeds-or people - are not being totally excused by this and thus, ultimately overlooked. If there's something to "excuse" [explain] the maladaptive behavior.. that certainly ought to be recognized. And analyzed, so that we may work toward changing/preventing the causes, if possible...

    I believe there are people who simply make bad choices and are selfish, I believe these people to be too far over in either their thinking or feeling and thus have corrupt judgment upon which they base their decisions.

    But I also believe that there are people so fundamentally different (the psychopaths and the socialized psychopaths) that place power over love and do not even operate at the same level as other human beings. There's no hope for them because they cannot even be motivated to want to change except simply what they can get away with for their own self survivial.

    Before labeling you "one of those people" I'd have to see you bending over backwards to make excuses for evil in others.

    When choices are hurting someone, then they need to be addressed. I just see evil as an arbitrary and subjective category. People should be judged for their choices, not for some alleged supernatural, innate quality that exists.

    I would call those kind of people "pitiful" not evil.

    I'd consider them beyond pity.

    I could feel pity for someone who merely had corrupted judgment but wanted to do better.

    I don't see evil as supernatural, I see it as a word to describe something.

    You could be the biggest bleeding heart ever and rationalize evil behavior to the point of absolving "evil-doers" of any responsibility, but still support them being locked up. No one wants a murderer on the streets. They just might not want to the one who personally condemns them.

    Wow, what a difficult question.

    "Bad" is when a person exhibits behaviour that we as a society and culture have agreed is bad. The actual symptoms might be selfishness, sadism, and other s's.. but the definition depends entirely on the beholding culture.
