In our highly judgemental society you often hear people referred to as “Evil”. People like Hitler, Stalin and Muslim Terrorists are always labeled as Evil. When I hear this it make me feel like it is extremely subjective. Evil, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Let’s take Adolf Hitler for example. Yes, he masterminded some horrible things but from the Nazi point of view, he was not “evil”. Germany was in bad economical condition and the country was looking for a way out. Hitler had a plan to make the country great again. Had he done it without exterminating the Jewish People, perhaps just deporting them, his plan might have made the country truly great. I’m not saying that the Jewish People were the problem, but had he managed his plan humanely and was therefore unopposed by other countries than Germany might be an awesome superpower. He had great infrastructure plans and having a homogeneous culture would be advantageous. Well, he was planning to take over all of Europe which certainly wasn’t nice and there was the extermination thing so I guess he was pretty close to evil. OK. Bad example.
Let’s look at Muslim Terrorists. To the U.S. they are “evil.” To their countrymen they are patriots trying to maintain the changing standards of their lives. They are not evil, just poorly organized. They consider the U.S. to be “evil” because of our interference. It’s all in your point of view.
I had other good examples in mind earlier but they are gone now. You get my point though. The overall theme here is that force is always considered evil by the opposition. So mind your own business. Nobody likes others to tell them how to live. Think how you would feel if the situation was reversed.
