That would just be sick and mean. Maybe those two together makes up evil though. I like the quote, if you try to supress your dark side it only grows stronger. It's just finding your outlet I guess. Mine would be taking advantage of people mentally weaker than I am. It's not nice, but I never really hurt them physically. I try not to do stuff like that, but when I try to be nice to them it just makes it easier to use them when I don't feel like being nice to them. Whatever, I don't think I truly believe in evil. It works well in books, but the idea is just so extreme.

well there's extreme evil...and light-evil...a whole range of evil...from abusing your loved ones to being a bully to telling malicious lies to murdering in cold blood to ordering mass murders....etc...

I see what you're saying. I guess we are all a little evil. I've done some fucked up things in my time. I guess I agree with your quote.

Of course, it's in our human nature...some are just more-so evil than others...based on what type of lives they've had, their environmental factors, dna and genes,...I think the number one factor behind evil is: Ignorance

Hmm...I havent really thought about what outlets I may use for releasing the "Dark Side"....maybe watching Violence on TV...I think alot of people watch certain Sports or Violence on TV for the same reason alot of guys watch Porn...because it's a release, for our energy...
oh, and I just like to steal shit sometimes...lol

So, what makes those things evil, as opposed, to, say... being good?

The fact that they cause pain...and suffering...unhappiness...things that are the opposite of Good...

But what designated those actions as evil and the others as good?

I think this all goes back to what the witches said in Macbeth.

"Fair is foul and foul is fair"

Or in other words: Anything goes

The best way to live
is to be like water
For water benefits all things
and goes against none of them
It provides for all people
and even cleanses those places
a man is loath to go
In this way it is just like Tao        ~Daodejing

yknow...I just noticed...your sig and mine are quite alike...heh, only yours is text and mine is a pic...In Flames...hehe

Anyways...two main things...Sadness...and Happiness...The masses have, (generally speaking) two main categories of emotions...Happy...and Unhappy...and of course there's almost hundreds of complex subcategories, but thats besides the point...The majority of the human race, even animals, have those two main emotional categories...what ever actions, be it from their own hand or other's hands..cause them unhappiness, will be deemed by the victim as "bad"..."wrong"...etc etc...which of course, depending on what the specific situation was, would be considered to be Evil, so...basically it's pretty much common sense...

sidenote: I'm about to pass out and so I'm not at my fullest capacity to explain things the best right now

Bassically, what I am trying to lead to is that the idea of what constitutes good and what makes up evil are entirely subjective, and only depend on the mind of the observer...
Peace.

Yea I know you were hinting at that...but...i mean, cmon now...lets be a lil realistic at the same time...there are quite a few things that are disputable as to whether or not they are evil...but I'm also talking about the things that people in their right mind KNOW are evil...yknow??

I know what you mean, and myself, I find that stuff downright horrible, as well... But it is still completely subjective. :evil:

I think everyone has an evil side, you just have to learn how to deal with it.
Saying you're all good, is a blind conclusion, men psyche doesn't work that way. I don't mean only in terms of action, your thoughts can also be evil.
As i see it, dealing with it means you should be your biggest critic. Let your subconscious, that voice inside your head be heard, that's where you'll find your balance.

Or their guilty pleasure.. :evil:

This, at its most basic level, is what I am saying.
