It's been weighing on my mind. I often try to rationalize the actions of others which is one of my weaknesses. My fiance often tells me that's the reason people hurt me. I am not talking about being cruel once or someone who does something vicious unknowingly. If someone is constantly being cruel to his sibling, is that being evil? Does the level of cruelty define how evil he is? What makes someone evil?

OK... it is not my intent to comment on every single answer., but I had to comment on this one. Really interesting story, Tom, and I believe you!
Wow, fascinating. I feel repulsed reading about those parents. Me? I would have thrown the gun away if my child or anyone close to me used it to commit suicide. Thanks for your answer.
Love your list of 20. Sounds just like ego.
This hub is in response to this question. Please CHECK out this hub, read, and leave comments, thank you ever so kindly.
Read and commented. You haven't commented on my response to your forum..what gives? :))
I did, your answer is indeed eloquent and each person has his/her perspective regarding the issue of evil and it meaning regarding the human condition.
Not the hub, the forum writing prompt.....lol
I totally agree with your response. Some people, because of inherent flaws in their characters, become evil although they were reared in the very best of environment while others raised in hellish conditions refuse to let such evil affect them.
