    good evil sane insane

    Do you believe in good and evil or do you just think people that do horrible things have a screw loose? I myself believe in evil and forces of darkness that take control of a soul and use it to do their bidding.

    EDIT: I should have made this multiple choice, my mistake.

    I think they have loose screws. I don't believe in the existence of evil per se. The forces of darkness that take control of a soul come from within.

    We, the USA, dropped two Atomic bombs on Japan. Now, I liked Harry S Truman, but one bomb would have been more than enough, don't you think. I think the thought process that dropped the first bomb might have been good, but the second bomb was undoubtedly evil. Same guy OK'd both.

    It wasn't "evil" -- it may have been a poor decision, but evil? No, I don't think so.

    I actually read once, they dropped the second bomb because the Japanese believed, they only had one such megabomb and couldn't do it continually.

    I believe that evil is basically ignorance and that good is enlightenment. Though we're capable of knowing better and being selfishly destructive anyway, it's not some mysterious unseen force, rather stupidity.

    Our serial killers and mass shooters? One only has to look at their eyes in their mug shots to know that their evil came from within.

    Evil is not a thing unto itself. It's not a force, or an entity. It's people rationalizing selfish actions that hurt others. Blaming evil on anything but one's own complacency and selfishness is just passing the buck.

    I believe there are forces of good and evil and also insanity and the sane.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
