A slice of compassion and let it be, the problem with humans is that reality is an illusion. Also there is an unconscious conspiracy to destroy philosophical and metaphysical dreaming.

Anybody can find out about these things for themselves, it may take more than one lifetime, but we already have the answers, we just need to ask and investigate ourselves, find out about ourselves, who we are, where we came from and where and what our reality is.
We should be looking inside, not outside to others. Of course, others can help us, can direct us but the real work is done by ourselves, the more we rely on others, the easier it is to be mislead, trust yourself before you trust others.

Perhaps the vast majority of this repugnant society
are taught to act out in a repugnant way. That does
not mean the vast majority of humans are repugnant
or are "evil" by nature.
Evil must be defined. I coined the term "false authority"
to define evil, meaning that we are taught to act AS IF
we have some entitlement to coarse others. Indeed,
some people will use any means necessary to gain an
advantage and/or undue influence over others.
This is False Authority (and it is how I define evil).
Some just call it BS, and yes, the world if full of it.
Simply stated, human beings are not evil, but
they can do evil things. When they do, it's always
because they assume some form of False Authority
over other people.
When children to this, adult ought to correct
that behavior. Sady, that is where they learn it
and therefore are not often corrected. This is
especially true with the mentor/guardian is
being a bad example themselves.
Evil is learned behavior. Saints take on the task
of unlearning this bad behavior, while those we
like to call "psychopaths" do not. In our repugnant
society "saints" remain at the bottom of the power
structure while the psychopath who demand False
Authority rise to the top of the pyramid hierarchy.
This is the upside-world we live in. It is where evil
runs rampant, and false authority is seldom unlearned.
Conversely, without self-autonomy there is no
true responsibility. The world need more of that,
and less of the counterfeit.
