when communicating on complex topics, it is usually necessary to clarify what exactly the definitions are of the keywords involved. we all have different definitions of what exactly 'evil' is. if we disagree on what evil is, then there is not much point in talking about it as a group. in my experience and understanding, evil is in essence along the lines of 'that which can cause, does cause and/or has caused destruction/devaluation/exploitation/harm/rejection of that which is sacred, nurturing, balancing, caring and/or innocent.'
as an example, someone who deliberately poisons water that feeds a village that results in killing children - is acting out/on evil impulse. in some cases evil manifests consciously (e.g. done deliberately) and in some cases it manifests unconsciously, where the ones involved have not though/felt deeply enough into the situation to realise their involvement with the presence of evil intent/thought/action. e.g. some supporters of psychopathic regimes who killed millions - genuinely beLIEved that what they were doing was 'for the good' - whereas those who are more open to holistic truth understand and know the presence of evil there.
do you agree with that general definition of evil?
