    •  Clearly actions can be evil. (5+ / 0-)

      That is a non-contraversial opinion.

      Well, I was addressing the declaration that "people are not evil." Evil as a state of being.

      I guess it depends on how one defines "evil."

      As I don't believe in Satan, or Demons, I don't believe in "evil" in a meta physical, theological sense.

      But rather more in a sense of incurable, at least pragmatically. And yeah, one doesn't have to be a sociopath.

      I just used that as it's objectively an example of humans who have no empathy or concern for others.
