We think we know it when we see it – perhaps we are programmed by our genes to view certain actions as evil – but it is still hard to understand. This blog is open to anyone who has opinions on human evil – whether expressed in wartime or in peace, whether by criminals or more mainstream individuals. While most books on the topic show convincingly that most of us, in certain conditions are capable of evil, I will try and concentrate on a small but significant percentage of society that have the character makeup to be creators of evil. Sometimes they drag the rest of us along with them. I will moderate all posts, and will also add material as I find it in books or on the internet.
