On evil ...
« on: September 26, 2019, 02:09:28 PM »
“EVIL WHEN WE ARE IN ITS POWER IS NOT FELT AS EVIL, BUT AS A NECESSITY, OR EVEN A DUTY. SIN IS NOT SO MUCH A DISTANCE, AS A TURNING OF OUR GAZE IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. HUMAN BEINGS ARE SO MADE THAT THE ONES WHO DO THE CRUSHING FEEL NOTHING; IT IS THE PERSON CRUSHED WHO FEELS WHAT IS HAPPENING. POWER IS AS PITILESS TO THE MAN WHO POSSESSES IT, OR THINKS HE DOES, AS IT IS TO ITS VICTIMS; THE LATTER IT CRUSHES, THE FORMER IT INTOXICATES. BUT THE TRUTH IS, NO ONE REALLY POSSESSES IT."  - SIMONE WEIL

Evil is the other side of love.

Some say, the opposite of love is ignoring something or someone.  Evil is an obsession like love.  LaVey Satanism is unavoidably Catholic.

The cause of war is love.

Love of gain.  Love of sex.  Love of destruction.  Love of murder.

Just say no to love ;-)

We cannot say no to love, anymore then we can help fearing for those that we love.

Tell that to a wife abuser or a child abuser.  They love to abuse.  Love is an empty word.
