Good article on evil...if that’s the kind of thing that tickles your fancy. The subject does not necessarily have to tickle, but you can’t avoid ever avoid it. You can read about it every day and witness it on television. And, what would politicians do without having Hitler and Stalin to use as labels for their competitors?
I think that this guy gets it right in his conclusion that evil is too broadly defined and not clearly understood. Much evil in the world is caused by men in power making decisions that harm many people. Why? Because they can and because they use conventional definitions of evil (god, human nature, the other guy), misinform, and lie to justify their actions.
We can’t change the world, but at least we can be aware of our dilemma.
