Hi!

The power of the "Golden Ring"............will it be used for good as is the intent....or will the "possessor" ultimately use the power for evil?

Then there is the "quest" for the "Golden Ring".........

The nature of evil is one of the harder things to pin down and it has been a thorn in philosophy and politics and a key element of drama since the dawn of civilization.

The first component that I think that we can agree on is choice, an animal kills out of instinct so we do not consider it evil. A human being on the other hand has concience and makes a choice.

The other component may be one of connection ~ who is more evil, the man who signs off for an entire village to be executed during a revolution or a serial killer. One is a cog in the machine the other is acting alone.

The pleasure derived from the action may also be an element of what we consider to be evil. Cold blooded murder may be different than somebody who really enjoys doing it.

The targets of the crimes, the actions themselves are all factors.

Evil is part of our humanity, it has it's uses in life ~ the balance between surrendering to that darkness and doing right by others is the challenge that every human being must deal with. This is not to say that we are all murderers at heart and we are all fighting that, but there is a softer almost passive piece of human nature that if explored furthur or developed could grow.
