Default There are two types of evils in this world.

Evil for gain - Evil. Example, a greedy corporate jerk screws over millions of people for some money.
Evil for pleasure - Insanity. Example, a mass murderer who kills people for fun.

IMO most evils, injustices, etc. can be likened to these examples, but on much, much smaller scales.

Do you agree or disagree with this? Why?

I think all evil can be connected with selfishness.

Evil does not exist. It is only what other people classify as morally wrong.
Usually after wining a war.

So you and Kingsnoke are saying that there is no "evil" in this world? That people should just do as they please and that laws, rules, and regulations should also be ignored because people can take them as being evil themselves?

Laws, rules, regulations, morals, change from person to person.

It is probably better for world order that we have them, but they are nonetheless a point of view.

The general mass of society deems adults that are in relationships with people below the modern world age of consent as monsters. I do not. That is a point of view.

In people's eyes, everything can be evil. These laws that you speak of can be evil. All of these rules and regulations that society places on us, in some instances, can be considered evil.

They're correct in saying that what is evil is dependent on the person's perspective of things. I mean, let's just look at Hitler for example: he had absolutely no problem killing millions upon millions of Jews. In fact, some even agreed with him and thought he was correct in his thinking. Others, on the other hand, considered him to be pure evil.

What is evil and what isn't is a matter of perspective, which means that evil exists everywhere and in anything.

You mean evil can exist everywhere and in anything. Since it's all a matter of perspective.

Exactly. It's all about perspective. Evil itself is an opinion, not a fact. It's literally you having a deep distaste for something that happened, may happen, or is happening

I believe everyone is a little evil, because everyone is at least a little selfish. It's human nature. But I believe no one is truly fully evil.

Well said.

And to those who are saying that there is no evil because it is only a point of view: Just because we made it up doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
