Are You Evil?
How to tell — and snap out of it.
I was on Mickey’s podcast again! We had an EPIC conversation about Evil:
This episode was such a relief for me, because I’ve been itching to talk about a gross trend in the Truther “community,” and that is: calling people Evil based on their aesthetic rather than their actions.
I said it in the podcast, and I’ll say it here too:
Evil is not a color.
Evil is not a number.
Evil is not a belief or an idea.
Evil is not a shape, or a symbol, or a label, or anything superficial.
Evil is a force, and its qualities can only be observed through people’s actions.
Remember that next time you’re tempted to flagrantly call people “Evil”
(or “transphobic” or “Illuminati” or whatever your preferred synonym for “bad” is)
because they said a word you wouldn’t say,
or because they wear black,
or because they like butterflies,
or because of anything surface-level that says nothing about their character: how they behave and treat people.
Per usual, after we finished recording this podcast, I thought of plenty more to say.
So I’ll be elaborating on this in the future.
