Does evil exist?
It is not considered polite or fashionable to refer to people or situations as “evil” these days. At least, it wasn’t until just a few years ago, when terrorist attacks, mass murders, and the scourge of child sexual abuse began to be more commonplace in our society. Evil is making a comeback, it seems.
What is evil? Where does it come from, and how does it affect our lives? Can we ever be free of the grip of evil?
