    Have you ever met someone who you thought was evil?

    I have worked with prisoners on parole, and I have met individuals where the concepts of right and wrong did not apply. They were only concerned if they could be caught doing something wrong. What is your story?

    In my decades of being a counselor, I have met many people with Narcissistic, Anti-social, and Borderline Personality Disorders. Yes, they are evil, because the consciously and calculatedly do the evil things they do.

      Krillco, I thank you for your answer, and I agree with you. Meeting an evil person can be chilling. The only thing they would all agree on is that they hated snitchers. In today's world, snitching is the only real power we have to stop evil.

    Well most "evil" people in history thought that what they were doing was right by the world. Hypocrisy and ignorance are the roots of evil. I honestly don't think many people walk around knowing that they are villains. It's a matter of perspective. A lot of countries around the world think that the US is evil because we bomb women and children and steal other nations' resources. In our mind, the world is a dangerous place and we have to bomb everyone in order to protect ourselves. And since the oil is there anyway...might as well take it.

    Well I haven't but I once had a friend that we were both friend with this other person and she felt she was evil. Some of the things that she used to do came off as strange like shady business practices and such and I would always catch them looking at people out of the corner of their eye.  But they were so good at it they never got caught. But the thing that was the craziest was this person did not think they were wrong.  It bothered me to know that someone could be that detached from doing wrong. It's funny that Krillco mentioned Narcissism because I thought the person exemplified a lot of those characteristics.

    My former boss is seriously suffering Narcissistic Personality Disorder.  His actions are evil.  I suppose that make him evil too.
