I believe that good an evil is up to the individual to decide.
Through my experiences, I have discovered that ultimately we are all connected to one another. So, to me, something I would describe as evil would be anything that destroys or inhibits self expression, and because our souls are connected, we must acknowledge that by hurting our brothers and sisters in spirit, we are truly hurting ourselves.
The harmony and balance forever needs to be restored. It's ok to cause ripples, but don't get upset when they bounce back, it is expected. You get what you give, and the greatest sin against man is that he rejects the fruits he bares.

On a minute by minute basis, we need to make decisions that may be weighted by consideration of what may or not be evil. On a macro level, where decisions affect others in a serious manner, such as the examples in the video the OP linked to, it would be better to put the question before the elders or judges of your village. Those kinds of value judgments may be better put up against a community scale of social norms. For example, that is why we have a jury system for prosecuting and creating verdicts for capital crime and do not rely on individual vigilante justice.
