Default Re: Evil or not?

so since i genuinely Just Dont Get Anything about typical sense of morality, i've gone thru a few logic puzzles with myself about good and evil.

so, what do humans need? food, shelter, the works. affection. a sense of purpose. to get in the way of these things, that seems "bad"/evil. to benefit these things, that seems "good".

if you put someone under the illusion that you are benefitting them while really not doing so, what is that? if you are providing a happiness, is that not a good because you're also taking advantage of them?

that being said i do think its true that good/evil apply to actions and not people--people can be anyone they want, and select any series of decisions they want. but doing things that hurt or inconvenience people is typically a negative. (no judgement, of course.)
