Yeah I may have chosen my words poorly. Its not about ending evil, but our ability to do evil on large scale.
A rock is not the same as machine gun or a bomb. A rock isnt a nuke or biological agent.
Your malice in stealing the meat I hunted for is not the same as your malice in getting me to drone away my life for your greater comfort.
Also, in your example, all I need to defend myself is another rock. NOW, I need a cop or a provable argument of self defence in court, or else I get
my property taken from me and thrown in a cage. Sometimes even when I am right in defending myself....you can sue ME in some cases!
I could just kill you and not give you my meat. Now, I would need to call the cops and wait, or face my day in court in front of a crooked judge whom
you may have paid off or been friends with or part of a larger social group with, or a judge whom I may have pissed off by being a certain race, or
political leaning, what ever, maybe I fit the bill for a larger agenda....then I go to jail-
Yeah, one situation is clearly more evil to me....
I will would take my chances with the stone anyday.
