There is no limit to how deep a human can fall. The evil in a human being knows no boundaries. If Dante’s circles of hell were brought to Earth, there are so many people who can share the room with the devil. We have witnessed the shootings which have occurred in the United States of America, and it can be said with confidence that if such gun laws were passed in any part of the world, the result would be the same – such is the evil that humans come up with. If given an opportunity to murder another human being outside the laws, mankind will immediately know how to take a life effectively. There are no opportunists like humans, and everyone wants everything for themselves. This greed has run through their minds which have been devil’s lands.
We have seen the increase in crimes, especially murders in the last few years. Corona virus pandemic and the resulting lock-down can be blamed for the same, but the real credit goes to the true nature of humans. They just need a reason for the same. If humans had a choice, they would choose evil – it is always the easier option, and you don’t have to try that hard for the same. Yet, humans have the opportunity to be evil or pure evil, and most of them choose the second option as far as others don’t find out. For the same, cash is a major factor – earning a lot of money makes one confident enough to be evil, and as the character of a person is rarely considered while recruiting for a job. Most of the successful people in the world would find it easier to be evil, as they are in control.
There is too much of a control which the celebrities have over others. They surely have the influence, and they can also easily manipulate people into becoming mindless zombies. The same was reflected in the movie, Driving Licence – the tale which had an evil film star trying to be the demon of pride like no other. Even though there is no goodness or lack of pride on the other side, the celebrity here is pure evil. There are a number of Youtubers who seems to be trying the same with their newfound popularity, but you see that some of them with lesser viewers are even better than some of the celebrities – well, world is not fair; nepotism and lying will get you through every time. In the field of cinema, there will always be sons, daughters, nephews and nieces coming up instead of the outstanding actors and actress that we would expect.
It is difficult to live in this world, which has no point – the reason for existence itself has been missing for so long. You keep failing while trying to find a meaning. It doesn’t matter how hard you try, the world won’t get any better for you, if you stay close to truth and justice. The closer you are to pure good, the more difficult it will be for you – maybe, it will lead to your death. Humans will never feel the need for good leaders in politics either – well, politics has been all about selfishness, and there has been nothing for the people, of the people or by the people. Politics can bring a lot of money forever, like a government job in which one gets through with the help of a political party or reservations in the name of religion, community and caste. It is no wonder that people leave this part of the world too easily, and the leaving is felt more like a necessity.
Why did humanity fall so deep into the well of greed and hatred? Where they always this evil? Well, they have held on to evil for very long, and they have inherited it from their predecessors. During the earlier times, there have been different explanations of evil in different parts of the world, but now, there are so many common things in evil, at least in the case of pure evil. Most of us witness too much of pure evil, and it is everywhere. In every corner, and at every turn of the road, you see the signs of the fall of humanity; the evil; the hopelessness; all the chaos – it would seem that there is no end to all of these. Human extinction seems to be the only hope, and whether religion or science causes the end of the world, we have to accept it, as faith, belief and hope have all gone the wrong way towards end, and you can only mourn them.
We can’t say that humans haven’t tried throughout the centuries – there were a few of them to be noted; even now, there is a small number of them who can make a difference like never before in history. But they will be stopped, detained or murdered, as they don’t have the power. We are left to choose from different types of evil, and there is the need for a careful analysis to find out the lesser of them – all the evil can be noted down here to know which is the worst among them. We are now left counting evil deeds, and that works as the exact opposite of hope. One day, these could be hunting grounds of the demons – maybe some aliens can serve as the same. Some of the most ruthless aliens like in Alien, Predator, The Tomorrow War and A Quiet Place can come in here. There is just too much of evil here, which should bring more of pure evil here.
I still wonder what we did to come to this terrible situation. Are we such terrible people? At which point did we fail? Evil was always there, and it has always found a way, but now we are so much at the limits, so much near the end. The basic evil nature is now not lagging behind with anything. You can always fight evil, but this pure evil which has embraced the world requires a better army to have a chance. The army requires love and compassion, but if the same is displayed, the pure evil side will lie, cheat, steal and murder like never before. I would let the aliens decide on this, and maybe when some creatures from other world arrives, we should support them instead of humans. There is nothing much for humans to do now, for it is out of their hands now. Maybe, doing nothing will serve everyone better and in a smarter way.
