Why Some People Are Evil. The Psychology Of Wicked/Evil People

From time immemorial, some men have committed evil acts that make people wonder if they are human and if they feel guilty about their actions. I have studied evil secret societies and wicked individuals, and I realized that they never feel guilty because their belief systems and way of thinking justify their evil actions.

For instance, evil people believe heaven and hell are man-made concepts; they believe no one knows what happens after death and think that all ideas about life after death are founded on assumptions and belief systems. Wicked people believe that only the dead know what happens after death. They, therefore, commit evil acts, thinking that they might not be punished after they die because the afterlife might not exist.

Evil people also believe that karma does not manifest instantly and it might require several lifetimes to manifest fully. They believe the universe might fail to punish them for their wicked acts and some believe the idea of karma is a man-made concept designed to promote moral behavior. This encourages them to exploit situations to their advantage, knowing that they can evade any repercussions.

Furthermore, evil people claim that good and evil are founded on human ideas of morality and have nothing to do with either spirituality or god. They understand that what is good can be evil in a particular era and what is evil can be good in another. For instance, they know that Senicide, the practice of killing the elderly was morally acceptable in ancient societies but is perceived as an evil act today.

Many evil people use nature to prove that morality is a human construct. They notice that animals kill each other and kill humans without feeling guilty or bad, and no god or man judges their actions. Animal behavior makes them believe that their evil acts are not necessarily bad because humans are animals.

Additionally, evil people have pondered the big question, Is Righteousness necessary? and realized that sometimes, the righteous suffer while evil people prosper. They have studied how the universe treats people and realized that it is not concerned with righteousness since bad things happen to everyone, including the righteous. This knowledge encourages them to commit evil acts, knowing that living a righteous life does not guarantee a good life.

Evil people also think that evil is an intrinsic aspect of universal consciousness/God/Source. In their conceptualization, the universal consciousness encompasses all aspects of existence, both light and dark, good and evil, and everything in between. They claim that just as light cannot exist without darkness, and creation cannot exist without destruction, so too does evil play an indispensable role in the cosmic balance. They know God is all powerful and they believe he doesn’t eradicate evil because it exists within him.

Wicked people believe God does not perceive evil as humans do. In their eyes, God’s perception of evil is not confined to human notions of right and wrong. They speculate that God may perceive evil as part of a larger cosmic plan or as a necessary element for the evolution of consciousness. Rather than simply condemning evil, they believe that God may see it as a catalyst for growth, learning, or a divine form of punishment.

For instance, one of the most evil men in history, Genghis Khan, justified his evil acts by saying, “I am the punishment of God. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.”

Lastly, evil people know that reality is an illusion, and therefore, it doesn’t matter if someone is evil or good. Within this understanding, evil is not bad because it is a transient manifestation within the illusory fabric of existence.

There are many other belief systems and ways of thinking that wicked people use to justify their evil acts. These are only a few of them I discovered after studying evil minds. I believe they are the most used justifications for wickedness and they clearly show why some people are evil. Nevertheless, do not use them to justify evil acts. It’s important to note that this article does not encourage evil, it mainly shows why some people commit evil acts without feeling guilty.
