Evil is something that people do every day, whether purposeful or not. Evil is something that everyone wishes to vanquish, though, evil is present withing everyone.

Evil- Article

‘Evil’ people are those who are unable to empathise with others. As a result, their own needs and desires are of paramount importance. They are selfish, self-absorbed and narcissistic. In fact, other people only have value for them to the extent that they can help them satisfy their own desires, or to which they can exploit them. This applies to dictators like Stalin and Hitler, and to serial killers and rapists - I would argue that their primary characteristics is an inability to empathise with others. They can’t sense other people’s emotions or their suffering, can’t see the world from other people’s perspective, have no sense of their rights. Other human beings are just objects to them, which is what makes their brutality and cruelty possible.

This article states evil is when a person cannot care for others and only worry about themselves. Also going on to say evil people are selfish and simply refuse to care for others. Their only desire is to complete their goals, taking no consideration for others. This is why the article uses Stalin and Hitler as examples. The chaos and pain that they caused is a prime example of what evil is.
