Where is Good? In our reasoned choices. Where is Evil? In our reasoned choices. Where is that which is neither Good nor Evil? In the things outside of our own reasoned choice.”
(Epictetus, Discourses, 2.16.1)
It’s happening because individuals CHOOSE to do these terrible things, just like good things happen because people choose to do good.
It’s not a mystery.
It’s not rocket science.
It’s basic human nature. We do the things we choose to do.
Choose understanding. Choose compassion. Choose kindness. Choose SYMPATHEIA (interconnectedness), and live according to SUMMUM BONUM (the greater good).
