    Why do some people refuse to acknowledge that there is absolute evil in this world, instead

    they maintain that almost everything is morally relative?

    Because evil acts perpetrated are usually from the frame of morality in the mind of the perpetrator. So in Hitler's mind, what he was doing was the morally right thing; ridding the World of the "evil Jews" who controlled the financial institutions and government which resulted in the working class German living in poverty and a downtrodden life.

    We might also present here a picture of George Dubya, Donald Rumsfeld, and their axis of evil who choose to invade a sovereign country under the pretence of disarming Sadam of mythical WMD in order to allow American corporations to steal their oil. In the process a quarter of a million Iraqis died in the ensuing chaos of a failed state after George deliberately dismantled the Iraqi army, police force and any vestiges of government that would be able to run the country. I say George's actions were absolutely evil, but an American who is still able to run their gas guzzling pickup might think him a hero.

    How we know good if we don't have its opposite?  We do live in a world of of contrasts; a Realm of Relativty.   How can we know we are experiencing light without ever having experienced its absence?  How can we know greatness unless we know mediocrity?   How can we know peace unless we've experienced panic or aggitation?  Big and small ; left and right; hot and cold - and all of the grades and gradients between extremes at either end - those extremes decided upon by our own conditioning - that is the only way we can know anything.

    You show a picture of Adolph Hitler.  Well, we know he can hardly qualify as a 'good man' in most people's eyes.  But there have been others as bad or worse than him.  Joseph Stalin was exactly a world's best man either and I'm pretty sure there are more.   Probably a really efficent barrister would get them both off of  genocide charges today convincing a jury they were simply of 'unsound mind.'

    Without this relativity we would not even realize that we exist.   If ALLl was light we would be, as Neale Donald Walsch points out in his story, The Little Soul and God, we'd all be simply candles held against a background of the sun.   Without contrast we would cease to be.

    What is this game that humans play,
    while making such a fuss?

    The species says it's you and me
    against the rest of us.


    Hitler is not someone else,
    he is a part of me.

    Neither can I separate
    the branches from the tree.

    Good and evil, Light and Darkness, both cannot be seen or realized when one cease to exist. Like Humankind and Animals, we can't distinguish differences if one do not exist. There will be absolute evil the same way that there is absolute good. Some people just don't accept it because they would deny such fact that there are some men born just to make the world burn. Its a scary fact, that's why wen can't accept it. But I do, and I would use everything to stop it.

      How can I choose 'tween wrong and right,
      know when to speak and when to fight?

      And when I think to take a stand,
      with outraged voice and fisted hand,

      how can I know this enemy
      does not reflect what I call me?

    Good and Evil are at odds every day
    They rest within the soul where they play
    Presumption indicates each individual
    Must choose a proper path continual
    Or face the consequences of actions
    That present for them Evil reflections
    Good is a simple matter when shown itself
    Evil clouds the universe thrusting a devil
    Apathy for Evil abounds in all the lands
    And aids the Evil one who tries to command
    For Good to become supreme in each human
    The individual must walk, talk, act, and remain
    Loyal to the Lord of Lords who is persistent in Good
    And relay the words of the Lord who understood
    Each human was given the ability to provide strength
    And so it is the individual who must spread Good length
    When troubled by the Evil – humans must resist
    For it is the Evil of the land that refuses to let Good persist
    The corruption of perceived leaders both far and near
    Has now presented a pivot point where Evil is cheered
    To those of Good it is difficult to understand the mess
    But until the Evil is overthrown, the corruption will caress
    Intelligence is needed in order to bring back the society
    And so it is the individual who must proclaim God Almighty.   

    When the Society follows God - evil is destroyed.

      In years gone by I read a book
      by Frank Peretti, yes and look

      it said on earth there is a war
      between us humans & much more.

      I took that bait, hook line and all
      but in the end as I recall

      another vision came to me
      and that is what has set me f

    Vanishing leaders all over the world, no matter the ethics or people 's acceptance- is not accidental.
    The way is being cleared up.
    There has to be no resistance.
    The plan is working.... So far.

    It simple:
    Mass Media-Crowd Control
    "Freedom" of Markets
    Financial slavery
    Fake pleasure
    Virtual reality
    No ethics

    This is how we all became sheeps and goats.
    We are now, willing to do anything that will provide us with fake happiness or wrong feelings of pleasure.

    Do you agree?

    I don't believe in total ignorance but, rather a sense of security in believing that evil is not near us! They want to maintain a child like innocence in the fact that nothing bad can happen to me. It all boils down to that we just want to feel safe!
