Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Quote

Good and evil are inanimate perspectives that are unique to the individual; for example, because socialism is antithetical to law in its religious pursuits and ultimate degradation of man, it seems evil to me. Others, such as Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, spew socialism as good. Said assassin then gets with like thinking individual religionists and forces those who prefer a lawful existence to submit to their pursuit of an unjust and anti-law utopia (socialism). The line separating good and evil is realized through every human heart and is only portrayed in a union of action (call it what you will - political party, the state, religion, etc., the union is a portrayal of individuals)

Ultimately, the heart, being the representation of the true self, manifests in manners that can be measured by the laws of nature and of natures God (natural law  gravity, science, life, liberty, property, etc.). Good and evil then becomes perspectives of law manifestation. Those manifesting and pursuing God's / natural law, progress as good. Those manifesting and pursuing other than God's / natural law exude evil.

Weak minds rarely have control over their emotions. As is the case with most socialist now exposed in party. 

Robert Edwards, somewhere in the USA

Those believing in God are both good and bad as in Natural law.
