Animated Documentary-Mockumentary about Evil in western civilization from Ancient Greece to present day. This video is intended to show what people have believed in and pointed to as evil throughout history. It was meant to get you to think about what evil really is. It is meant to show that when we get too obsessed with "evil" we might end up taking part in it ourselves. One has to separate evil and human cruelty. Human cruelty is people not being nice to one another. Evil is something else, it is something we have created, a word and a concept for things that are not acceptable. It is a label for things that we do not understand and dont want to understand. But is evil really ever a complete explanation for anything? A lot of bad deeds has been done in the name of good. The people that did them meant good, are they evil? (Like the Inquisition? I wouldn't call 'em good, or intelligent :p)
Mandatory disclaimer for the average genius... :p
This video is not meant to:
-blame wester culture and people for all the â??evilâ? in the world. Iâ??m european, and thought that I better stick to my own history.
-blame religion for all the evil in the world.
-claim that God is dead. (It is simply a reference to the philosopher Nietzsche, look him up.)
-offend anyone, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
