Is it necessary to be the part of evil if you want to finish that evil?
No. The best way to fight all the ugliness and stupidity in this world is to create beautiful things.
If you're baker, make honest and healthy bread.
Money is often the rood of evil, people want to sell cheap unhealthy bread so they can make more money. That's not the way to go.
If you want to make money, make it by creating something worthwhile.
So if you die, the people would say, that was a good and honest baker. His bread was the best bread in town. It will be remembered.
Nobody remembers the baker with the cheapest bread in town.
Nobody has respect for the cheapest bakery in town even if he/she has a billion dollars.
If you respect someone, solely for fact that he/she has millions of dollars you have to question yourself.
never stop educating yourself
don't go for the money but go for your passion.
take care of the world around you.
enjoy simple things.
Your question by nature will probably be better understood with a little more to relate to. Having said that, ALL scriptures tell us that Love is the only answer.
I will put it a different way. Whatever you do should be coloured by a sincerity of purpose, or purity of intent. That way you may slap the child, even very had if necessary, so long as you motive was to prevent her from running into a car or touching fire ...
What I am saying is that it is the inner motive that counts. Actions by themselves have no power. What is crucial in actions, is a live vibrant awareness of the power of God.
A soldier once injured an enemy soldier. Knowing that the man was wounded and helpless, he then went up to him, tended his wounds and nursed him back to health. When this was reported to the Commander, he embraced the soldier and said: "This man has understood my philosophy. Treat him well."
The inner journey is all in all. Never be troubled by your own conscience. It is always the Divine talking to you and you are either listening or in time will learn to listen. Prayer and solitude are the essential keys. So approach that evil with firmness, if necessary, but coloured by the Light of Love. Much Peace.

I am all for World peace and everyone living harmoniously with the World around us. However, since the beginning of history there has always been conflict in one way or another which makes me feel that disharmony is a necessary evil. Is this the case or is conflict caused by humans?

feel that the issue of evil is morally relative while others believe that there is absolute evil. A few strongly insist that evil does not even exist. There is evil in this world and in same cases, there is pure evil. Do you believe that there is pure evil? Why? Why...

Edmund Burke wrote: ‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’ - Isn't good men doing nothing really the evil ? What expectations should we have of those that are already evil?
