Response to DanieRains (Original post)

52. Quantifying evil is strange. If someone kills 50 people as opposed to 100, are they any less evil?

What about a serial rapist who never murders anyone? What about a white-collar sociopath who defrauds investors, even if only his or her own family and friends?

Moreover, as far as I know, the only human life Hitler ever personally took was his own. By that standard, he has nothing on Ted Bundy or Stephen Paddock. Or does he? Is it in fact more evil to have other people kill on your behalf than at least have the “courage” to do the deed yourself?

What about one’s motives and intentions - in addition to the consequences of one’s actions and the actions themselves? What’s in the human heart?
