If People Could Do Better, They Would
Incompatibility, punishment, and reward.
It’s easy to say someone is evil. We see someone doing something wrong, or hurtful and we call it, “evil”. Then we call them out. We share that with others. We try to impose our will upon the evil, thinking that if we exert enough pressure, they will change. We think that somehow, our actions will fundamentally change the behavior of the “evil-doers” when we call out their behavior. That kind of change is about as permanent as a corset.
