The events of this day and age, force us to contemplate evil. It is everywhere and seeks for a foothold in our hearts. It encroaches on our lives and the lives of those that we love. And, it seems to have exploded onto the world with a ferocity unseen for thousands of years.
There has been no time in human history, as evil as the time in which we live. The only eras that might compare to it were the days of Noah, as well as Sodom and Gomorrah.
But, why now?
What allowed us to become so evil?
Part of the answer is in the title of this piece, and it bears thinking about. Deeply.
