On evil

I may not be a religious person, but I have very well defined ideas of what is right and what is wrong, and while I may not believe in the devil, I do believe evil exists.

People may do bad things, but this doesn't necessarily mean that they are evil. Things happen, and sometimes people do bad things out of necessity.

But, forcing a good person to do bad things, that is evil. And justifying bad things being done using religion or politics, that is evil.

This is one of the reasons I recently changed employers, and one of the reasons I am struggling to find hope for the country I live in.
