    Default What Creates Evil? What can be done about it?

    What do you consider evil, and how do you you believe this evil comes about?

    What can we do about evil?

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    "This great evil. Where does it come from? How'd it steal into the world? What seed, what root did it grow from? Who's doin' this? Who's killin' us? Robbing us of life and light. Mockin' us with the sight of what we might've known. Does our ruin benefit the earth? Does it help the grass to grow, the sun to shine? Is this darkness in you, too? Have you passed through this night?"

    So far as I can tell, showing each other the face of battle.

    There is the capacity for evil inside each of us, lurking deep down.

    It's just.. more practical for us to hide it away to ensure our own survival, in this society of ours.

    I think EVIL is just a "strong" word people use to describe things they really don't like. It's not an object.

    Yes. What's scarier than a person convinced they don't and never will have it in them?

    lol, i have truly met people who refuse to believe that they are anything other than infallible despite being confronted with contradictory evidence time and time again. like jk rowling once said, i would be jealous of people who can just turn their backs on reality, except i know that the willfully ignorant are the most frightened and weakest of all.

    Evil for me is gratification through other's pains.

    Evil is relative, even some of the people considered to be the most evil think that they are the good guys.

    True evil is simply just chaos and sadism. A truly evil man would say "I killed this man because I thought it would be pleasurable and fun to watch this man's sadness and fright as he left this planet at my hands.", while what would be considered an evil leader might say "I killed this man in the interest of our nation as a whole, for he could have dismantled the entire system through which I plan to do and do good things." and actually believe it.

    The Federal Reserve/IMF and the Frankfurt School. I believe they come about when vigilance is lost and cultural identity wanes.
