Is the word "evil" properly used as a noun, verb, adjective, adverb and/or preposition? Does it make sense to talk about the "quickly apple which fell down the ground"? Does it make sense to talk about "God's golden hair which falls beautifully around her broad shoulders"? Does it make sense to talk about the "Good threats issued by evil people who said that they would carry out God's disintegrative will and destroy the dangerous non- conformists who threatened the good order of society"? When "good" people are in the habit of issuing overt and covert threats to do disintegrative things---if others do not conform to their conceptions of what is proper--- the fruits of their habits are disintegrative. When "good" people threaten "evil" people with condemnations, excommunication, estrangement, and alienation---the fruits of their threats are not sweet. Simple common folks can judge for themselves how "good" the "good" people are in the light of the alienative relationships which they engender. "Evil" is a word which is best reserved to describe reflexive relationships. It is confusing when the word "evil" is used to describe: 1. People 2. Things 3. Places 4. Ideas 5. Perceptions 6. Organizations 7. Religions 8. Races 9. Cultures 10. Ethnic groups Evil pertains to human relationships; all of which are reflexive. Objective language does not clarify and help us to understand and deal with evil relationships--- because objective language does not help us to deal with reflexive relationships. The use of objective words in dealing with reflexive relationships often confuses human perceptions and thought processes. The use of adjectives as nouns does not clarify thought. People who are trapped in evil relationships are not helpfully thought of as evil people. "Good" people who threaten people who are trapped in evil relationships do not thereby help such people to become and/or be "good" people; for human threats are always alienative. Natural disasters are not evil, no matter how unfortunate and destructive they may be. They do not of their nature generate alienative human relationships. Tragic developments are not evil; they are rather the fruits of evil relationships in which people do not deal openly and honestly with conflicting human ideals, values and goals in the face of real human limits and limitations. People who engender threatening social contexts thereby engender fears which in turn engenders evil human relationships---and so engender personal and communal disintegration. Attempts to control "evil" people through the use of threats---are attempts which bear bitter fruit and do not merit respect or support. Fear of the fulfillment of such threats engenders evil human relationships which include the "good" people who seek to control some presumably "evil" people. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
