The most victorious in violence, rise to power and have huge influence.
The most greedy gain the most money and have the most influence.
It takes 9 months to bring a human into this world but they can die in 1 instant.
Something built for years can be destroyed in an instant.
The free-will of the master does away with the free-will of the slave.


Why would A Good God or Metaphysical Laws allow this?

And who said violence never solves anything?
Sorry, shouldn't make lite of it but the Masters of the world have been at this for millennia and that's what works for them.

The Power of The Secret?

What is mortality to an immortal. You strive for what you do because life is fragile and finite in time. To ponder the thought proccess of one not held by such constraints is maddening and could possibly lead to apathy and/or nihilism.

Why must there be a reason why?

Gods and metaphysics have never ruled the world.
Those that can take power do.
I'm sorry you are believing otherwise.

The most vicious and the most greedy also take the most risk. And for every one of them that rise to power there are 1,000 of them that don't. They may have the most power and the most reward, but they are few in numbers as a consequence. They are weeded out just the same, but most often with far dire consequences.

The soft-natured or kind hearted play it safe. They don't tend to climb as high or hold as much influence as a result, but they are far greater in number and in that gain their power.

Nature or even the universe itself is shaped through violence. It typically means change is afoot. It is nothing to fear and nothing to doubt.

Strength rises to power.

Power is a reflection of strength.

It can be good or bad.

Weakness is never a virtue. It's an excuse.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil
is that good men do nothing.

Maybe because you are looking at it that matter.
I feel like this question can be the same that is answered by most in charge.

If you do not ask then you will not receive. God only has as much power as those that grant this entity that.

Stop asking such dumb questions and man up.
Simple as that

The bully seems unbeatable at first, and he is until the victim stands up and fights back.

As for why a good God would allow such things, that is the nature of free will. God gave us life and the ability to make decisions for ourselves. The results of our decisions are the price paid for the ability to make them.

No not weakness but meekness is a virtue and so is extending justice
Divide and conquer seems to be working, working well

Who justifies what is evil and what is violence

I would call abortion evil and violent, but others don’t, it’s all subjective

The science of psychopaths is a growing field with a lot of work out there. While each case is different, there are many trends and various risks for those that interact with them.

What helps me come to terms with it is understanding that Earth has been a Jungle for millions of years. To get us here, DNA has been an important part. The way it works does make for a good search algorithm in a system where there are near limitless possibilities. Competition is an important part of the genetic evolution process. It is just the way it is.

I know of lot of things suck in this world. It did not happen overnight and we cannot change it all. But there are some things in our life we can control and change. It is much healthier and more productive to focus on them.

It is good to be aware of the dangers in this world, you are not alone in being concerned about it.

God said Satan can rule/control the people of the Earth for awhile. ("Awhile" could be 5 billion years. Blink of the eye to God/Satan.)

Because giant dicks run the planet. That's the sad reality.

A thunderstorm is violent as is a raging sea, it is a natural part of the world around us and in us, it is merely a dynamic, primal transfer of energy and has no agenda in and of itself.
Imagine the violence of a supernova, it would be a beautiful thing to witness.
I used to love heavy music(actually still do!) because it was a potent release for the violence that exists within me, viva la moshpit!!.
What is unnatural though is cruelty, I find it abhorrent on a visceral level and often it is confused with violence when infact it is just one of the forms violence can take.
Many times throughout history the cruel have succeeded using violence as a ready source of energy.
Greed is one of the seven deadly sins for a reason, it may prosper briefly but inevitably it guarantees entropy and despair for the greedy, it exists to feed on energy and what it once gave it will take back in spades.

Occasionally, nature speaks to us in ways that are unmistakably clear.

Because society is like a thick stew; If you don't stir things up once in a while, all of the scum floats to the top.

Satan is in control of this world for a while. It says so in the Bible when Satan offers Jesus the kingdoms of the world in exchange for whatever Jesus may have had a desire for. Satan wouldn't have made the offer if it wasn't available. This is a fallen world and with Satan in control right now, greed, power, violence are things Satan's people use. God can intervene but if that happened too much, it would be like a football game where the ref keeps changing the rules and doesn't let people learn nor let a regular game be played.

Therefore we all suffer in this game of life but we learn. Caring for others and doing good makes the world a better place but evil likes to destroy all that. Evil likes to kill and destroy for selfish reasons. Many people still think that's the best way for them. They haven't learned. Many won't though. Why does God allow so much pain and suffering? I guess so that those who can learn, do. Some won't and they might get to enjoy this life but will suffer forever afterwards.

God gave people free will to choose evil or good. He's letting us choose. Evil hurts others. Good people can choose to stop evil but if we do nothing, evil takes over. If Satan's kingdoms succeed and all stays well without disasters, wars, and major suffering, Satan can argue all was going well. This world as we know it is doomed to failure. There sounds like ATS.

While I subscribe to the sentiments of good and bad and the limitations of our environment tied to our genetics, I think it is time that we come to the conclusion that our intelligence should supersede these limitations.

There is no more reason to be agressive or to be suppressed. We are smart enough to provide for all, we just don't want to
