"What frightens the common

"What frightens the common citizen is the possibility that some people hurt others not because mommy and daddy “mistreated” them, or because they have a psychological deficiency that clouds their judgment, but because they fully and consciously ENJOY doing what they do."

But your "because" here isn't a because, it's just an assertion that evil people enjoy being evil. You give no causation -- n because. I see your list did not rule out physiological deficiencies so perhaps that's the "because" you meant to pin the evil people down with. You ruled out nurture, so you must being blaming nature. There are people born evil.

Kids raised in compassionate, engage, freedom-seeking families with no chips on their shoulders can be simply evil. Do you know any such people? I mean, if this is an actual phenomena, it's got to be spread around the population. Because as you said, it's nothing to do with how a person is raised; it's innate.

I know two people whom I would label evil; both had terrible upbringings and have chosen to stick with that. Do you really know, personally, evil people who were not perverted by their upbringing or subsequent experiences and then continually chose to remain in that perversion?

I'm as amazed that you choose to look for some mystical, unexplained evil group of people to explain the crimes of our time, as you are amazed that the general public doesn't agree with you that the evil you seek is right in your own hands.

Phooey, this stuff is just classic sleight of hand to keep you looking outward rather than inward.
