Good & Evil

Good and evil are measures of the intent to benefit others or to harm them.

Good is the deliberate wish to benefit others.

Evil is the deliberate wish to harm others.

A person who doesn't understand the consequences of his actions may do harm without intending it. This is the reason for the old adage about the road to Hell being paved with good intentions.

Without conscious volition there is neither good nor evil. A tornado can produce great harm, but since it has no will it can't intend anything. It is a blind force of nature.
