See also, the lesser, anguishing wrong which is right, that which is not for you, or I, or even we to decide. Like hospice, marriage, job selection, education, or even religion; it is up to the individual or the family to decide. Political consensus has as much place divining righteousness here as it does declaring whether Junior bats righty or lefty when he or she steps up to the plate for tee-ball.
Thus evil can be, and is borne in our own minds and hearts.
"Defeat It!" is an answer for flag-waving morons. As if it is ever that easy. Anybody on the planet can pick the right answer between good and bad.
However, choosing between two lesser options, or ruminating on the variable causes of good and evil; that takes intelligence, introspection, and some contemplation.
