A History of Evil



El video:

Animated Documentary-Mockumentary about Evil in western civilization from Ancient Greece to present day. After all the comments I feel like some clarification is in order, but firstly, to you guys that liked it: Thanks, you've made my day. The film was intended to show what people have believed in and pointed to as evil throughout history. It was meant to get you to think about what evil really is. It is meant to show that when we get too obsessed with "evil" we might end up taking part in it ourselves. One has to separate evil and human cruelty. Human cruelty is people not being nice to one another. Evil is soemthing else, it is something we have created, a word and a concept for things that are not acceptable. It is a label for things that we do not understand and dont want to understand. But is evil really ever a complete explanation for anything? A lot of bad deeds has been done in the name of good. The people that did them ment good, are they evil? OK, and finally, This video is not meant to: -blame wester culture and people for all the "evil" in the world. I'm european, and thought that I better stick to my own history. -blame religion for all the evil in the world. -claim that God is dead. (It is simply a reference to the philosopher Nietzsche, look him up.) -offend anyone, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. -claim that Elvis was evil. -be an exact and complete account of the actual events that has taken place throughout history. This was a student project, hence the "unfinishedness" and abrupt ending. I ran out of time. I might update it later. It was animated frame by frame in flash and composited and textured in AfterEffects.

Antik Yunan'dan günümüze batı uygarlığında kötü kavramı konulu güzel bir belgesel animasyon film...

what i understood from this presentation is that the only period in human history that was free (more or less) from "evil" is the short one between the end of the greco-roman world and the emregance of christianity. after that, enlightment, science, modern pop culture- are all connected to something with a negative aspect. so, apart from the obvious example of nazism, the claim of this presentation is that anything that i'nt christian is evil by nature.

As simple minds cradle themselves to sleep with moral relativism, a few of us somewhat intelligent folk realize the truth... things change. But that doesn't mean good and evil don't exist, only have to change along with it. It manifests differently given the tech, the culture, the opportunity. Whether we want to pretend it's God's will or some other fictitious magical explanation of fate or cause, the fact is these forces make their presence well known in our minds and in our actions. We overcome one evil by changing into another. The fact that this ended at the increasing surveillance state proves most cannot imagine what the future holds, but I guarantee you the lack of privacy is the least of our worries when minds are molded by commercialism and propaganda fed to us by dimwitted celebrities on radioactive platforms all while still punishing us for petty shit we probably didn't even do. The fact people downplay this only proves one human characteristic has not changed: Denial. They live in denial Google is a multi-billion dollar despot that controls what message gets out there to the public, all while blatantly breaking laws and making away with scores of wealth so they can perpetuate it further. They live in denial how everything they feel strongly about, from love, morals, politics, to just everyday shit is at these bastards beck and whim to silence, alter, and keep us entangled in poverty over. Hard work gets you nowhere when all it takes is some asshole to shut down your channel, even when legally he's not supposed to and could get in real trouble for it. (Assuming enough point it out for the law to be effective in the first place.) No one can honestly tell me the things they put up with be it youtube's moderators, or wall street's dirty deals is good, but they put it in the back of their minds as some sort of necessary evil, because without it the good parts of modernized living would go with it. How good is your life really? And do you really think change isn't going to happen just by letting really disgusting people continue to be disgusting? Fight for the change. At least then you can take some pride in your short life and maybe make it into the history books. Then all that suffering, failure, and hardship actually will mean something.

+TheManWhoAteLife Truth be spoken , you are totally right . We are the architects of our own destruction . This is HELL , not that fictional place all the cretins speak off . The Twilight of Man has begun , Salvation is no longer possible , we are doomed . Man will bring destruction upon itself sooner or later , no god , no satan , only the Evil which resides in mankind .
