"There is no dignity in wickedness, whether in purple or rags; and hell is a democracy of devils, where all are equals." - Herman Melville (1819–1891)
Evil for the sake of evil....and entertainment. It's hard for many people to wrap their heads around that concept. Unfortunately, there are many sociopaths out there, whose only source of pleasure is inflicting pain on others. Thanks for a good read.
For the love of money is THE root of all evil.
Just just 'a' root but THE root.
Not just money but the LOVE of money.
Follow the money they say and without contradiction it applies here as well
Bought the book.
If I may, re: the 4th type, demonic evil
Demonic evil could be called religious evil. Yes, we can call it satanism. I believe it is not a spontaneous affair. One has to be indoctrinated into it.
Talmud and Zohar praise it as a way of liberation. These hebrew scriptures are the source most of "modern" evil done in a deliberate way on a mass scale.
Also, after some research int Babylonian mythology, I discovered how Hebrews warped a good lot of it.
To me it seems Abrahamic faiths are designed to enslave, not to liberate.
Great article, as well as the links. Thanks.
