Evil: an action taken based on an unquestioned belief.
Human: an ape-like mammal that builds a model of the universe inside its brain and upon physical maturity, moves a model of itself inside the model, avoiding the real universe at all costs.
There’s a reason that McDonald’s and the Catholic Church have the same motto: because it defines the social hierarchy molding process of individual brains. “Get em while they’re young and keep em for life”.
Violence is never really the root problem: it’s a tool. The use of it to force behavior or condition children is an evil based on a blind belief in authority: authority based on imaginary beings amplifies the problem because it works for those who sell imaginary beings (and their books, cheeseburgers and military service). The root problem is always the various levels of blind beliefs while ignoring real things, real effects.
