Evil is the UNSPEAKABLE harm that humans do, KNOWINGLY, JOYFULLY and REMORSELESSLY, to others who are NOT in the position to fight back. That includes harm done to children and animals, women, the elderly. But also the harm done to a NATION’S CITIZENS who can’t IMMEDIATELY fight-back it’s government and big corporations’ immoral policies which destroy lives under cover of law.
There are many people who fit the bill, whether in politics (both democrat and republican parties) or in our regular communities. I give you here only TWO of the many and most disgusting and scary faces of EVIL:
When the ‘beacon of freedom’ sees torture as something ‘useful’ and moral, as the ‘right thing to do’ to others, the Conrados of the world have triumphed over our hearts.
I think it is our moral duty to be as OUTRAGED about our government’s torture policies as we are about this beast who tortured that child.
They are one and the same expression of evil, in different faces and with different accent.
