- No.
- Are you an angel, then?
- No.
- A saint?

Om Mani Padme Hum

Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

My feelings about people

I'm told that my opinion that humanity is evil is obvious from my posts. Let's take a look at that. I do not think individuals are evil. I know a great many people who have nothing but the best intentions and wouldn't dream of committing an act of bad let alone evil. But sometimes evil isn't in the intentions. Our leader the great Obama, think of the great Oz a little man behind the curtain fooling everyone with an amplified voice into believing he was more than he was, may have the best intentions in the world and wouldn't dream of doing evil himself, doesn't in fact that he's capable of it. No more that George the Second, or George the First, or any of the others think they're committing an evil act, but they are, and by endorsing, or even by not rejecting, them we've become complicit in their evil and become equally responsible for the evil they've committed. 
I'm not going to discuss fate, or karma, or illusion, let's assume that these acts of murder committed by our leaders through their willing and unwilling accomplices are real and have real consequences ending innocent, and not so innocent lives some of whom would murder us for no better a reason, forever. Doesn't that make humanity evil?
