what is evil?
if black people can be labeled as evil for crimes like robbery of corner stores, physical assaults, and other petty crimes. what do i call a people who lie to the public about invading countries just to steal resources, then murder millions of unarmed men and women in the process. create laws that deprive the common man of his self determination. drop bombs on entire cities, do human experiments. what are these people called? the ones who actually commit the crimes, and the ones who are in league with them who pretend they dont see it happening?

Re: what is evil?
"evil" is an abstract concept defined by the "norm" of societal behavior in the group doing the defining. thus, it is relative. slavery is "evil", unless you're an antibellum plantation holder, or an ancient roman or greek, or a modern day wealthy haitian, as but a few examples. murder is "evil", unless you're a bomber pilot dropping incendiaries on a civilian population of your "enemy". eating meat is "evil" if you're a member of PETA.

Re: what is evil?
you are a noob.

if a man kills another man it's murder, but if he is with 100,000 other men directed by the government he gets medals for how many men he kills.

if a man forcefully takes someone and chains him in the basement for something he did, it's kidnapping, but if the police do it it's called justice.

if you take money from someone it's called theft, but when the government decides to take yet another percentage above the 30% they already take from you it's called taxes.

if you tell someone what to do or not to do, or else you will forcefully take him and chain him up in the basement, it's called oppression, but when the government does it it's called government.

in short, a crime is only a crime when it's done on a small scale.

Evil is the opposite of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you.

And I don't consider robbery and physical assault as "petty" crimes.

Evil is something you use when you feel like getting something done.
