nothing’ - Isnt good men doing nothing really the evil ? What expectations should we have of those that are already evil?
"Evil is negative behavior bias, it causes other negative behavior bias to flow in the same direction, as an electron stream which bombards a positively charged target... You see the wave of behavior is either a positive or negative influence to each manifested thought, word or deed.
You essentially create behavior from a point of perception where you envision what you wish to create. If you fail to visualize what you want you flow with the current of the dominate bias. Here, you see, you become a bird of the feather and flock with the prevailing wind of chance reality...
What this says, "You get what you desire, will, and emotionalize into existence... If you do not manifest your existence you are the product of someone else's reality...
To answer your question, "one can be very good at being evil and very bad at being civil", like Nietzsche, prescribed in, "Beyond Good and Evil", for humanity to be good and evil... How evil might it be, thus hell is prescribed? The converse is to be good at doing inclusive, selfless and civil stuff and bad at exclusive, selfish and evil... This would put the human species on the map of soul searches in a positive direction towards a positive goal, objective and plan... Other than this humanity is at the mercy of the winds of probability and the fickleness of chance without choice... This is the current course, journey and path of humanity, "evil by default"...
This is the dialectical, the rhetoric and paradigm needed to address the human condition for its virtue as dignity and decency; its worth as wealth and value; its goodness as purity and equity; and its ethics, as moral integrity... You see, without inclusive, selfless civility you have evil by default...
When we stand idly by when evil is in our face, and do not respond to correct that which we witness, then we become as bad as the one doing the evil. As Christians it is our obligation to step up and intercede for righteousness sake, even if we put our own lives in peril of death.

How true is the premise that good always triumph over evil? Will good eventually overcome allevil or it evil an inevitable part of the natural and human condition? Analytical answers please or perhaps someone can write a VERY INTERESTING hub on the topic at hand.

I find the god no god discussion so tired. Yet for some reason when human behavior is discussed good and evil creeps in, sin and virtue. What about humanity and its complexity without tainting it with religious antireligious sentiment?

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...

Have you lost faith in humanity?Perhaps I watch too much news, or maybe it's because I'm getting older and my eyes are more open to man's inhumanity to man. Then again, perhaps I just can't see the beauty of the forest for ugliness of some of its trees. I can't know for sure, but what I do...

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?
