Evil exists every where in the world. There is always some sort of excuse of
the evil doer. They watched killer moves, they were not loved, they lived in
poor environment, they were sexually abused, and so on and on and on it
For every torturous excuse, there is a hero excuse....
The person that lived in poverty but was determined and became a surgeon.
The person that was sexually abused as child but now heads a counseling center.
The person that grew up without love but now lives lovingly with a husband and children.
And so it goes.
Don't allow excuses for evil. Seriously.
There may be crap on tv and crap in the news and crap every where we turn.
However, there is absolutely no crap in the world that makes someone evil, except their self.
TV shows to some extent can influence teenagers most tv programmes now a days in India are avoiding moral values and encouraging crimes . teenagers can easily be attracted to such vices if not properly trained as you said evil exist everywhere and it is the way we adjust to the circumstances that can help us avoid such evils .Awise man should have the ability to recognize evil and good deeds
