I'd Say just Living would make you evil. each action you take immediately effects the world around you. the action may take noticeable effect after many years/decades/centuries, but it will come to light eventually. while a lot of great things can happen due to this, the misfortunes should not be ignored.

Ex: you buy a donut. fast forward a few hours later and a person bought out the last donut with the other next to him pissed off to see it gone. that pissed off person happened to be a Cop. the cop sees a driver slightly speeding and pulls him over. while the cop gave him a warning due to his record, he ended up venting his frustrations off of him through lectures. the person pulled over was an already depressed man who had filed a divorce. the cop's bitterness had drove him off the deep end and made him commit suicide.

of course no malicious intent was intended in that scenario but the event could have possibly been avoided should he not have bought that donut. actions with good intentions can have predictable effects and consequences to an extent, but the possibility of someone being screwed over it there, hell someone could actually be saved by someone being malicious. can this be mended? HELL NO (probably), but i think it's important to consider decisions to the extent of your own prediction capabilities while accepting losses outside of your scope of visibility.

I don't think that the root of all evil is the root of all good, but that is an interesting thought. Personally i think that the root of all evil would be closeminded, illogical, selfish thoughts.
Just my opinion but i would like to see what everyone eelse thinks.


You just might be onto something!
That sounds a lot like addiction.. so all of crunchyroll users are evil got it!
lol don't mind me i'm just internetting


All crunchyroll or most are evil or have you not seen them making jokes when someone gets murdered or the jokes made during all the massacres lately.


That does not make someone evil.

Some of the most heroic and opposite of evil people i have met and known make jokes about such things or stuff like 9/11 etc.

A style of humour does not make one evil.

Original acts of evil. i.e. the acts of evil that bring that specific evil into the world for the first time and into the minds of the innocent leading to corruption of others and eventually more evil.

Evil is a vague, bloated human concept. We created evil. A definition of evil includes 'profound immorality, wickedness and depravity' but conveniently leaves out the fact that the judgement of evil is based on perception and is therefore, subjective. Almost any idea, subject or action can be given the label of evil as long as some people consider them immoral.

Evil is nothing more than an anchor we use in communication to give form to our prejudices. Nature is not concerned with evil - plants and animals simply live. Humans pass judgement. Nature may be harsh, cruel, unforgiving, and unfair but it is laughable that our pitiful idea of evil would apply.

Some religions preach of evil to drive guilt and fear into the hearts of their adherents. Every single day, the thoughts and actions of millions of people are shackled by a deep-seated, self-conscious fear. We are not born with a moral compass - it is built within us over the years, little by little, more often by what we're told than what we learn though experience.

Rather than accept that evil exists within us, we try to distance ourselves from it; to ignore or shut it out. And then you wonder why some people cannot come to terms with themselves and wallow in self-misery. How is it that humans, who arguably have infinite potential and are able to bend earth, water and fire to its will, commit suicide? By all accounts we are as close to our vision of god as can be, yet there is misery and despair.

It should be noted that not all religions divide things between good and evil. Heaven or hell. Passing judgement.

Humans created evil and therefore humans, as generic as that sounds, are the root.

I was going to say 'consensus', but I think it's pretty obvious that it's blind acceptance that precludes correcting behavioral problems.
