The Third Form of Evil

The two forms of evil we are most often warned about are 1) doing evil and 2) denying the existence of evil.

If you can abstain from #1 and avoid #2, you’re on a good path, but that’s not all. There is a more subtle and socially acceptable form of evil that often seduces even those who avoid the first two: equating your hatred of evil with the process of actually doing something about it.

This third form of evil has rendered many sincere and well-meaning people irrelevant. Don’t let it do the same to you. Rise above evil, but always remember that there is more to being good than merely looking down on the bad.
