I was looking at what people would perceive as evil. Awful faces, witches, distorted, disfigured, they all have in common EVIL! When we were kids we
were taught to be scared. So we would either behave, or even eat your veggies. We were told stories, saw movies, read books, of the horror, and
evil's... of beast... or man?
We have our depiction of the devil, demons, ghosts, but we all think that they are easily recognizable, because who cant spot the evil woman, she
should have a wart, with hair on it, or the man with the boils on his face, they're the evil ones. We think of beauty and we think peace,
tranquility, everything the opposite of evil.
I propose that the real reason that we have all of this hate, destruction, death, is because we can't recognize evil. My definition of evil, is
someone that can cause harm without regard to another, no remorse, murder, rapist, etc.
I was watching 300 ( along time ago), and something always stuck with me, I watched the special features, and they said that the bad guy/traitor, in
fact was not deformed, but after the atrocities that he had committed, and the story passed on, people felt better to show how awful he was and easier
to recognize as "evil" by others, by making him disfigured.
I thought to myself, really? What he did wasn't enough? Why would the human mind only recognize evil in the truest form only if it has a physical
flaw, and it seems the bigger the flaw, the more evil. I believe that this is the further indoctrination, to be able to dupe us more easily, by traits
that would be VERY easy to recognize.
Think of the traits of the so called evil people. Can you think of someone who has committed one of these atrocities and wasn't deformed? Or fit the
profile? Was it hard for you to picture right away? I know it was for me. Thanks for listening, I would love to hear if anyone else had a hard time
with this one. It was hard to write, I had to really think about what evil meant, and no matter what the outcome of humanity, unless we see actions
and not looks, we will always fall for the wrong person, for what our brain may be telling us is the right thing.
Peace to you...
