This insightful book identifies the cause of evil as a psychological mechanism we all share. This mechanism causes us to project that the problem is "out there," meaning we tend to blame others for the origin of evil and conflict. Through real-life examples, the author explains why those who cause conflict will never be able to stop conflict. Only people who are willing to think outside the box will be able to make a real contribution to the removal of evil. Unfortunately, people with this potential usually withdraw from the debate and this is part of the explanation for the endurance of evil. Many people feel powerless to do anything about a problem as immense as evil. This book explains that we have been brought up to feel powerless and that we can overcome this programming by acknowledging who we really are. In this deeply empowering book, you will learn: How non-aggressive people can make a difference How elitism is the key to understanding history How the localized self, the ego, is the cause of personal evil How our minds filter out information and how this allows people to do evil while being convinced they are doing good How black-and-white thinking plays a role in most conflicts How most people are trapped in certain mind states that make them susceptible to evil How we can reclaim our true identity as non-local, universal, spiritual beings.
