Evil... for the purpose of this post, I will mean for evil to mean bad. Bad as in not good and not neutral.
Evil doesn't paralyse me, but it makes me more determined to create security in my life by means of modifying my thoughts, attitudes, and behavior. It makes me take stock of my reactions, my financial freedom, my strengths, my weaknesses... everything that affects how safe I am from the evils of the world. And these evils come on a large scale, I'm not just talking about the night stalker or nuclear war. I'm also talking about people that wish ill upon me. The everyday evils.
