-- Plato. Society may have a lot of affect on perfectly good people turning evil. At the end of the day if all of society turned evil, then the good people would turn too. People aren't just born evil they choose to be evil. "It's hard to accept that all the evil in the world comes down to something so simple.
What would life be like if one could get away with illegal actions and weren’t held responsible for their behaviors? What would it be like to have a cold and empty heart that contained a strong lack of empathy towards the people of today’s society? More importantly, what characteristics of a “normal” human mimic ones of a psychopath? Although the majority of psychopaths are immediately put into the category of “crazy”, they share common factors with normal people than one might think. Psychopaths are productive in society, have elements of emotion, and share correlated brain patterns with the “normal” people that are classified as non-psychopathic.
My view on why god allows evil is that he does allow evil simply because of free will. I believe this because god is all-knowing he knows our next move but he gives us free will to choose evil from good or vice versa, but natural evil people wonder why god would allow this and simply I will state why. There are two kinds of evil in the world: moral and natural; both appear to exist in abundance. Moral evils are those evils that are freely inflicted upon humankind by humankind: Larson, adultery, murder, theft, etc. ; they result from the choices of free will.
Mencius felt greed might eventually push man to turn evil. He felt it was will power that man lacked if this happened. Many people believe in good and evil. Though in reality good and evil is a fine line. What is a good deed to someone might be conceived as an evil deed to someone else.
When most people think of psychopaths, they think—with a shudder—of serial killers like Ted Bundy, who seem to show no remorse or even understanding that what they do is morally wrong. Psychopathy —also called sociopathy—is indeed defined by lack of empathy, callousness and complete disregard for anything or anyone else other than one's selfish needs. But although all psychopaths meet the criteria for what the diagnostic manual calls "antisocial personality disorder"—of which psychopathy is the most extreme case—not all of them are ruthless murderers. "People don't realize that there are hundreds of sociopaths walking around [who] aren't criminals," says child psychiatrist Bruce Perry, M.D., Ph.D. "They end up manipulating people to get
Evil is something caused by living things with free will which is intended to cause harm or misery to something or someone else, though different people have different views on what evil is. One argument is the atheist argument, and that God can’t exist if he allows evil. John Mill, an atheist philosopher, says that God can’t be real because if he was then he would not allow this much suffering to happen, especially to innocent people. Another non-religious view is that sometimes bad things happen, not because a ‘God’ has made it, but just because not everything that happens in the world is good. For example, there was a mini-bus crash where 12 children and a teacher were killed, and an atheist would say the mini-bus and lorry were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that it certainly did not have anything to do with God.
The Subject of Order vs Chaos is somewhat of a cliche topic found in everything. It can be compared to good vs evil. Ralph represents the good in the world and Jack represents evil. With this topic, Golding describes the idea that all humans are inherently evil, by portraying evil actions done by Jack and his followers. Chaos and savagery come as a result of men trying to find pleasure without making sacrifices.
“God must be Evil” The question “is God evil?” is asked very often with both sides of the question offering different answers to this question with no definitive answer coming about but in both cases people coming out with very convincing arguments for both sides of the story. Some people argue that God is indeed evil because he is omniscient and because of his omniscience he knows that from the moment he decided to create us maybe even before then he knew which of us would reject him thus securing a place in hell for them or would sin again securing them a place in hell and yet does nothing about this. This is a major contradiction to his supposedly being omnibenevolent and some people even go so far as to use examples of murder and rape which are horrific events which they then use to say “how can a loving God allow such a thing to happen?” They then go further into it saying how as God is omnipresent and can see everything that has happened, will happen and is happening he must take some sort of sick pleasure in watching these events occur and so is evil. Or at the very least by allowing such a horrific event to happen without some form of justice or stopping them then he has to be evil as only an evil person would let evil acts go unpunished. Sam Harris uses this idea in one of his quotes saying that “Either God can do nothing to stop catastrophes or he doesn’t care to or he doesn’t exist.
It typically fashions itself in a question such as this. How can a good God allow so much evil to take place if He loves us? This is often asked by but not limited to someone who has been hurt while serving God faithfully or by someone who has no significant knowledge of who God truly is. The problem of evil also presents itself as more of a statement rather than a question as well. If God is all powerful and in complete control why does he allow such evil things to take place?
On the other hand, other crimes are thought of as less important while some other crimes are labeled wrong despite whom the witness might be. The natural definition of crime is any act that is seen as “fundamentally wrong, strongly disapproved, and deserving of punishment,” regardless of whether it is legal (Robinson, 2005). Natural crimes are crimes that are morally and ethically wrong and would be wrong no matter what the law says about them, while legal crimes are the type of crimes that are simply illegal due to the government labeling them as such. Murder is a crime that everyone can see is wrong disregarding how a person may look at it but drug abuse can be thought of as to only hurt the person doing it. One must remember that laws were created to make sure people are safe and secure despite how they may feel about the laws and that laws are meant to forbid anything that can be deemed wrong.
