    What is your definition of evil? Do you think there is an objective meaning to it, in a real world sense?

    I would define evil, in general, as the deliberate (so not merely a product of mental illness or an accident) disregard for morality and mortality surpassing a certain threshold of emotional, mental and physical pain. For example, I would definitely classify rape as evil, because it causes all three.

    Evil would be the deliberate and continued repetition of acts that are considered morally reprehensible.
    Cruelty of any kind, abuse, rape, murder etc
    However, each person has their own perception of what is moral so there isn’t a set standard

    True evil can only exist in a world of objective morality, which we do not have because we are subjective beings. However, the greatest bad is the unnecessary infliction of pain. An ideology that calls for the infliction of eternal suffering on subjective beings would thus be the embodiment of pure evil.
