Regina, Saskatchewan; Canada
Everything among us includes choosing, and moving ourselves, and influencing others towards better or worse, more directly or less directly. I think life and worth on a certain level have their own standards and that is by no means only a choice, but also many conditions that are already there. We have life-needs and lifeworth that we must observe to live and live healthily and heartily. We did not come to know evil on day one though; we came to know it thro comparisions in all things we generally do and may do over great lengths. Choosing, moving, and influencing ourselves towards the worse, against lifeneed and life worth, are the evil, and we know this because there was or is better in other choices, motions, influences. That is not fully defined by any choice, but by the general state of things, what life generally needs, society and the world and man comparing his own approaches and how it serves in those. There is no choice but to have this life's need and worth, but there is a choice how we serve need and worth. When we serve them better we do good, when we serve worse, we do evil.
