A lion kills a gazelle and tears it to pieces as it feeds; is that evil? No, it is Nature! To call the act of a lion evil (wicked) is silly; wickedness requires a rational being (i.e., free-willed knowing agent) i.e., a human being. “Evil” is not in the intellect; it is in the will; it is act-of-will! To call the act of a human wicked is to indicate – or imply (i.e., assume as logically necessary condition) – a host of presuppositions e.g., human nature (i.e., a being possessed of a rational i.e., moral nature), God, “good,” morality, obligations, truth etc., and the same presuppositions are implied each time an individual claims something good, evil, true etc. Moreover, each such conception presupposes an ontological order i.e., a divinely created order…

One is instructed to keep the nomination process of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s before one’s mind, as one reads…

Sociologists write of ‘desensitization,’ by which they refer to the human soul’s gradual acceptance of the unacceptable if the soul is long exposed to things which the soul finds objectionable. This understanding has been utilized by sundry social-engineers as they have worked to shape of public opinion for generations now; the political class – particularly those of the social-political Left (and the Democratic Party) – are tirelessly working to manipulate public sentiment so as to produce a modern Sodom and Gomorrah…

Trending: American citizens vs. Uneducated Mob

Among modern thinkers (e.g., Peter Singer*); there is an a priori denial of evil – or wickedness – as a corollary to their inherently contradictory a priori denial of God… Note that moral evil is a function of will, rather than intellect… Thus, the modern thinker (a thinker that begins with an a priori act whereby all thought is rendered bankrupt i.e., empty, i.e., lacking in any but transitory meaning…), embraces the social construction concept of morality. Thus, the modern thinker (sentimentalists all) is today an advocate of abortion on demand, infanticide, sodomy; as normal and good, hedonism also as a good, and tomorrow these thinkers are for whatever society comes to embrace through the unrelenting ubiquitous social conditioning (manipulation) to which it is subject…

* Singer is a sentimental modern ‘philosopher;’ he is noted as a ‘moral’ philosopher; his is the morality of caprice (and iconoclastic) and Nietzschean will-to-power; for Singer man is an animal, an intelligent animal, but only an animal; we (übermenschen’s) get to decide – from day-to-day who should be given protection of law, and what is moral and immoral…  Singer is one among a growing throng; unfortunately, most Americans have insidiously (i.e., via a gradual unconscious process of desensitization and the absence of moral instruction; clergy have spent far too much time either flattering-their-flocks or tacitly promoting Babel and sin…) largely accepted nihilistic hedonism…

We propose a few observations – without proof:

1.) Those that love truth desire to make it known; this renders them disposed (open) to discussion and debate; beings such as these welcome the opportunity to discuss competing views… Beings such as these are proponents of ‘forming a more perfect Union, establishing Justice, insuring domestic Tranquility, providing for the common defense, promoting the general Welfare, and securing the Blessings of Liberty for ourselves and our Posterity…’ Souls such these approximate Plato’s just-man.

2.) Those whose souls are ordered otherwise approximate Plato’s Tyrant; they – as Nietzsche’s übermensch are not moved by compassion, the true, or the good; they are moved by an insatiable indomitable will to subjugate and crush all things which stand opposed to their will. Such as these stomps the life out of the innocent babe; which is pretty much what Demonic-rats and social-political Leftists do vis-à-vis abortion…

Regarding: “evil.

Evil – is defined by Saint Thomas Aquinas – as: a lack of a quality an entity should naturally possess e.g., blindness in and eye; moral evil: a will which refuses to acknowledge truth which would requires an alteration of the will e.g., rational (moral) beings which refuse to acknowledge both that they are moral beings and that they are possessed of obligations, as moral beings… Note that evil hasn’t any being (existence), but persists parasitically upon a moral host… Consider that a rational being – whose essence is to know (note to know, is to know – necessarily – truth) should possess the desire to become what he/she is (humans are ‘formally’ rational, but must strive to actualize their rationality; such actualization is accomplished by ‘denying one’s very self – daily – picking up one’s cross and following Jesus Christ)… Evil/wickedness then “goes his/her own way,” rejecting/avoiding the truth of reality and the natural (instructive) law… Note: although Aristotle formalizes the natural law, it is mentioned by Socrates and Plato, and Saint Paul in Romans 1: 19-20) which pervades existence… The natural law is discoverable – like mathematical relations – by a rational being; it is not something humans invent…

And Einstein claims “evil” is: “the absence of God.” Einstein would view God as a principle of order; absent God there would be chaos; moral chaos would be a condition wherein good and evil are confused. That is if God is absent, so is His measure; the absence of God in the soul of a rational being renders the soul susceptible to gradual accept the irrational e.g., such as unrestrained appetites as described in Romans 1: 21-33 (i.e., the inverted passions of the sodomites)…  By driving God from the “public-square” the moral conscience is made blind and mute…

Saint Augustine asserts evil is: “Loving (desiring) that which cannot be possessed and acting to move (manipulate) everything out of one’s way so as to reside that which cannot be possessed.” Augustine explains that one may only possess one’s own will, for all else may be taken from one; to possess one’s will is to be rational (virtuous e.g., Plato’s just-man e.g., Jesus Christ); to be ordered otherwise is to be a slave of one’s passions, and a slave-of-one’s-passion serves his/her appetites; such a soul is ordered tyrannically (Plato’s man of injustice) – as opposed to rationally…

And finally, we argue evil, is: “the desire to be God;” a soul so ordered assigns “good” and “evil” so as to accord with their inclinations; truth is that which they will; they desire to be the law-giver…

In each definition, the souls so ordered is turned against the truth; such is ultimately the disposition of Pride, for pride is an act-of-will which refuses to acknowledge the objective order such a disposition ascribes/imposes “good” and “evil” via the Nietzschean übermensch… Such a disposition antedates Nietzsche because such is a disposition is Luciferian… The sin (turning from God) of Pride describes the egoist, for the egoist will countenance only that which affirms him/her; moreover, the egoist deigns they should assign what/who is good, and what/who is evil.

As Diane Feinstein has brought allegations against Brett Kavanaugh – in an attempt to advance her, and her Parties interests, is not mere politics; it is abject wickedness, something she and those of her Party inveterately do, because their souls are souls which worship evil, and all of its manifestations. Diane Feinstein is not just, but she abhors justice understood as: “every person should be rendered their due.” Feinstein and all other Demonic-rats Corey Booker, Kamala Harris, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama et al, that embrace the DNC Party Platform are advocates of several varieties of pre-Socratic Justice, viz: ‘helping one’s friends, and harming one’s enemies,’ or “equilibrium through time’ (i.e., the sins of the father will require the son’s punishment), or blood-vengeance…

There are those that may find Diane Feinstein, pleasant and likable, as they may find any Democrat, but she is wicked through and through, just as anyone endorsing the DNC Platform (thus many millions of Americans; these may include you, your family, friends, relatives) is wicked; for a soul ordered in wickedness may ‘look, but not see, listen intently, but not hear and understand’ for they have an aversion to any truth which is in contradiction to their interests. Again, such people may uncannily be – under the right conditions – quite amiable, pleasant and enjoyable company, but such traits would accompany the Liar, the Murderer, the Deceiver, i.e., “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44”

If one should ‘look and see,’  ‘listen and understand’ one will recognize that Lucifer is most honored by the Democratic Party Platform which extols – as virtuous – the murder of intrauterine infants, and sodomy to their hearts content. Such people are not fit to serve in the Government of the United States…
