Remember Bill Clinton’s aphorism in his presidential election “It’s the Economy Stupid” reminding people that the condition of the economy is the number one issue in that election.
The title of this OP reminds that all the spree killings, and terrorists murders, starving, poverty, crime, oppression, mass genocides, racism, sexism, etc., are an indication of the world/matrix that we live in and no one particular group, idea, philosophy, person, being, is the root of all evil….In fact it’s the world matrix and its revolving nature of bringing about eventual suffering that is the real root of all evil.
Anything else is only a reflection or shadow of this reality which has everything to do with our nature and how it has been perverted.
Actually this idea is the essence of most religions’ philosophy that is the rupture--sometime in the past--of our true nature….And until this rupture is repaired humans will be always be subject to some version or degree of the above experiences of suffering.
