    Default Evil, Justice and the Individual

    Why aren't there more vigilante's?

    I mean, people do evil things all the time in the name of selfishness. Why don't more people do evil things in the name of justice?

    WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD!? Better question, why do I allow myself to be such a hypocrite?

    Maybe we should live up to our convictions.

    Or maybe I'm just excited for The Boondock Saints 2.

    I meant this as a serious thread.

    Why are people so indifferent of all the shit in the world?

    Because there's repercussions for people that carry out justice using their own methods and without proper credentials. Sucks, huh? Sort of. Ultimately, it's necessary.

    Because we live in a functional civilization.

    If you want to see more vigilantes, go to Somalia.

    If it doesn't affect them they have no reason to care.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Evil hinges on time moving forwards.

    Time is the determinant.

    If time went backwards, all evil is good and all good is evil.

    You just happen to be living in a part of the universe where time goes in a particular direction.

    What is evil?

    Trial by jury is a pretty good idea. More people should arm themselves, learn martial arts, and be cognizant of criminals so they do not become victims, though.

    People rightfully think that they don't qualify as judge, jury and executioner.
