For half a century or so now, there has been no such thing as evil in the West. Absolute moral relativism (yes, pun intended) has been de rigeur amongst our educated class, and hence amongst our ignorant classes also. The closest thing to evil in the postmodern mind has been intolerance towards leftism’s cultural vandalism, although this is usually treated more as a repugnant mental defect rather than evil per se.
The mass delusion that evil does not exist has created the perfect habitat for evil to thrive. This is because delusion is the road to evil. More on this below.
All men (and women and degenerates in-between) worship something. For most of Western history, this worship has been directed toward metaphysical entities such as God or his intermediaries. The occasional ambitious nasty might have joined a secret society and worshipped Satan, but this was atypical. Until the modern era, worship was directed off-planet, or at least outside the physical plane.
During this modern period we’re steadily exiting now, however, humanity has returned to the more ancient practice of worshipping physical objects. Nowadays though we proles don’t beseech our household lares for protection and guidance. Instead, we’ve brought religious devotion back to the source. We worship ourselves.
This began among the intellectual vanguard of the Enlightenment period. They had to be quite secret about it, at first. Now for the majority of r-selected Western proles, however, we are the object of our own faith, adoration, hope and affection. We determine reality and the parameters of morality. We are the repository of our trust. We have deified ourselves.
This has led, as it must, to radical moral and intellectual relativism. We have not only eaten of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil; we’ve burnt it down and built a strip mall. All standards by which truth might be comprehended are seen as arbitrary and personally determined. As this solipsistic mentality has taken hold, it has put reality further and further outside the grasp of the majority of people in the West. To most people you encounter today, there will be some truth which will be distressingly offensive. Express it, and you may well lose your job, be shunned or even unfriended with a mouse click. The avoidance of reality has become a permanent pastime for the majority of First Worlders, and the consequence has been a pandemic of evil.
Narcissistic, Borderline and Anti-Social Personality Disorders begin with a break from reality, usually rooted in trauma. What begins as a coping mechanism for a reality the person feels as too painful (usually a loveless parent), over time becomes a pattern of reality-avoidance which makes them capable of breathtaking cruelty and manipulation in order to maintain the image of their false self. Many of these disordered individuals remain undetected in the relativist soup of modern anticulture, and go on to traumatise others (usually their children), thus perpetuating the cycle. The truth is anathema to mentally disordered individuals, and as the number of these people grows the ability of the dwindling number of non-disordered individuals to speak the truth has become severely impaired. We have now reached a point where the President of the United States advocates for homosexuality, transqueerism and Islamic ideology, and wide swathes of society applaud him. His rhetorical skill at raping reality is beloved by adoring hordes. He fortifies them by example in their own little bubbles of dysfunctional self-deception. This smug queer is a mental illness Enabler-in-Chief for all the demon-people, and they love him for it.
Evil is growing in the hearts and minds of men as it nears its end, just as Jesus told us it would. It is not spreading in a vacuum, however. It is thriving due to relativist ideologies which make all assertions mere opinion and all moral standards negotiable. Only by uprooting these noxious sophistries and restoring empirical realism as the basis of human thought, will we be able to change the intellectual climate to again enable flowers, rather than weeds, to grow.
