bindlestiff2600: there is bad
and there is wicked
the sign of evil tho is consuming someone's ability to live
and does not have to directly kill (Pratchett - Granny Weatherwax)



alt example
the turks taking children (from conquered lands -  to become janisaries


Yeah, taking children away to become elite soldiers is pretty evil, but the janissaries did have pretty good benefits and statues. It's why they resisted attempts to modernize or abolish the system, which would help the Ottoman Empire's downfall.

/Greatist villain: Bella Swan from Twilight. Seriously, she's a manipulative, unfeeling sociopath!
She has no regard for the needs of others, threatens to harm herself if ignored, and generally acts like a parasitic biatch.
And then she gets sparkly vampire powers and is nigh invincible. Something tells me that there's a lost ending where she leads the emos vamps to conquer and subjugate the human race.

Rent Party: gas giant: Rent Party: Cormac McCarthy

The baby eating cannibal gang in "The Outer Dark" make him look a choirboy.

I realize there are over 600 posts in this here thread so it's no knock that you missed them, but Chiguhr is one of several McCarthy characters (most notably Judge Holden) to come up.  Hence my comments.


I haven't read The Outer Dark. There is also a baby eating cannibal gang in The Road. I think Cormac McCarthy and George RR Martin need some help.

Also just because god has followers that distort his teachings, that doesn't make him evil. Can we be creative now? Kthxbye

Two late literary entries, one from myself, and one from my retired english teacher mother.

Myself: Col Graff of Ender's Game.A man who was, at best, delusionally human, and at worst, a monster. And he knew it. An "Ends at any costs" man, willing to program and break even the best, brightest, and youngest.

Mom: She went simple. The witch from Hansel and Gretel. Using children's own, nearly involuntary wants and desires to coax them to her, and eat them. Pretty damn evil.

Two Xykon references in the same thread.  Fantastic.  Although, Tarquin upped his Evil Quotient by about 500 Kilonazis in a few recent posts. That comic is far too awesome.

With that being said, how can there be an Evil thread without mentioning the reason *why* evil exists?

The first characters that immediately came to my mind were:

- Anton Chigurh from "No Country for Old Men"
- Harry Powell from "The Night of the Hunter"
- Hannibal Lecter from "Silence of the Lambs"

This chick has them all beat:

Graff was not evil.  No different from millions of others that do what is necessary who, if they had the power to trade a few for the lives of many, would.  Cold, sure.  Logical, sure.  Evil?  No.  By your logic, a vast amount of the human populace is "evil".  Graff even expressed feelings of guilt and remorse.  He knew it was a terrible thing and felt bad about it, struggled with it.  Questioned himself like any given person who "sins".  Evil people do not have remorse.

If you're going to draw evil from those books, it'd be the kid Ender killed in the shower, or Achilles from Bean's books.

Even then, still relegated to typical psychotics.  Broken, but not so much evil.  Same banal suggestions as so many farkers.

timujin: There's the whole, "torturing the souls of the damned for all eternity thing". And, of course, tempting the virtuous into sin so that they suffer that fate. That all goes back to the one who created the game, though, Satan's merely a player.


Only if you look at the fan-fiction. According to canon he didn't do any of that. Except maybe for Job, but that was because dared him to try it, and even then there was no mentioning of souls.

mitchcumstein1: Satan


By definition, this.  Has a role in the Christian, Islamic, and Jewish faiths.

I remember watching the original Battlestar Galactica as a kid.  I remember Count Iblis as the big bad and thinking he's the show's devil expy.  I also caught the bit about Count Iblis being the in-universe voice actor for the Cylon Imperious Leader* (both being Patrick Macknee), which I took to mean that Count Iblis, as the Cylon's original corruptor, was a greater evil.  What I did not know until years later was that 'Iblis,' translated to Arabic, is the Islamic name for Satan.

* IIRC, the original Cylons were lizard people with self-aware AI.  Count Iblis made a standard deal-with-the-devil with the AI servants/workers, allowing them to overthrow the lizard Cylons and become the bad guys we see in the show.  Note- This is all based on the original show, not the 1990's comic book.

While I agree with your points, and yes, you're correct, your means of expressing your opinion only go to show that you're probably not the most popular guy at the parties. Really? You're going to complain about a fark thread being banal? Then post the definition like most people here don't have an education worthy of knowing it? I bet you wear your fedora sideways, just to be extra hip.

So, go on, enjoy being right. Have your smile that you opinion not only differs from mine and others in the thread, but that from a literary standpoint, you were correct. I posted my opinion, since I found the "following orders" side of things pretty farking evil, not only that, he orchestrated, even built the curriculum. I'm sorry my opinion doesn't match yours, and I'm so very, utterly, painfully.. well.. banal.

I offer up the Shrike, from Hyperion and its sequels. Nine feet of metallic, barbed merciless pain. When it comes, it moves in the blink of an eye. It won't kill you; it will simply find an empty branch on the Tree of Thorns and impale you on it. Then you can die... eventually.

"So of course we use them," Scarsdale well into what by now was his customary stemwinder, "we harness and sodomize them, photograph their degradation, send them up onto the high iron and down into mines and sewers and killing floors, we set them beneath inhuman loads, we harvest from them their muscle and eyesight and health, leaving them in our kindness a few miserable years of broken gleanings. Of course we do. Why not? They are good for little else. How likely are they to grow to their full manhood, become educated, engender families, further the culture or the race? We take what we can while we may. Look at them-they carry the mark of their absurd fate in plain sight. Their foolish music is about to stop, and it is they who will be caught out, awkwardly, most of them tonedeaf and never to be fully aware, few if any with the sense to leave the game early and seek refuge before it is too late. Perhaps there will not, even by then, be refuge.
"We will buy it all up," making the expected arm gesture, "all this country. Money speaks, the land listens, where the Anarchist skulked, where the horsethief plied his trade, we fishers of Americans will cast our nets of perfect ten-acre mesh, leveled and varmint-proofed, ready to build on. Where alien muckers and jackers went creeping after their miserable communistic dreams, the good lowland townsfolk will come up by the netful into these hills, clean, industrious, Christian, while we, gazing out over their little vacation bungalows, will dwell in top-dollar palazzos befitting our station, which their mortgage money will be paying to build for us. When the scars of these battles have long faded, and the tailings are covered in bunch-grass and wildflowers, and the coming of the snows is no longer the year's curse but its promise, awaited eagerly for its influx of moneyed seekers after wintertime recreation, when the shining strands of telpherage have subdued every mountainside, and all is festival and wholesome sport and eugenically-chosen stock, who will be left anymore to remember the jabbering Union scum, the frozen corpses whose names, false in any case, have gone forever unrecorded? who will care that once men fought as if an eight-hour day, a few coins more at the end of the week, were everything, were worth the merciless wind beneath the shabby roof, the tears freezing on a woman's face worn to dark Indian stupor before its time, the whining of children whose maws were never satisfied, whose future, those who survived, was always to toil for us, to fetch and feed and nurse, to ride the far fences of our properties, to stand watch between us and those who would intrude or question?" He might usefully have taken a look at Foley, attentive back in the shadows. But Scarsdale did not seek out the eyes of his old faithful sidekick. He seldom did anymore. "Anarchism will pass, its race will degenerate into silence, but money will beget money, grow like the bluebells in the meadow, spread and brighten and gather force, and bring low all before it. It is simple. It is inevitable. It has begun."

And they hang babies from trees in Blood Meridian and Judge Holden straight up throw puppies off a bridge. Chiguhr at least follows a personal code that's predictable, I'd face him over Judge Holden any day.
