    I would agree with the 7 deadly sins. They wouldn't have been categorised with such a name if it wasn't true. Of course they might be from a religious point of view but don't they apply to life in general anyway?

    Even with modern society its hard to say which deadly sin is more common but it doesn't mean that one is not common at all.

    I dunno about that. If it's a matter of perspective, then all it takes for us to eliminate evil would be to turn a blind eye on things that we consider to be evil at all times, or at least consider them to be "not evil". So would you say things like rape and genocide are evil only because we consider them as such? I don't think so.
    Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

    Re: The Root of All Evil

    Am more likely to answer

    Excessive love and obsession for power is the root of all evil

    sometimes money is just a vehicle to obtain the channels for power.

    Re: The Root of All Evil

    I'm quite surprised no one here has mentioned power so I will.

    Power is the root of all evil because it starts wars, often makes you greedy, and not to mention clouds minds from good judgement.

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    Whereas I do not think perspective is the root of all evil. People do use their own perspective to define and set the parameters as to what they believe evil is. Therefore within that context I agree with you 100%.

    For example, one may consider being dictated to by another as to what is evil as an act of evil itself. Again, its all perspective.

    As for myself in regards to what I think is the root of all evil. Nothing, since I do not give acts of evil much thought anyways.
