This vertiginous treatment of the war against a just social order avoids political correctness. In a series of three papers, the author offers apposite views of trust’s relationship to human development, heterosexual marriage, moral corruption and the current culture of narcissism. This paper deals with the latter three topics in general and with evil in particular. Oriental views on social order and governance are presented in terms that describe tradition’s ruin at the hands of an ethno-centric cult that zealously assaults time-honored laws of social cohesion. The paper removes any veneer of ‘Brave New World Progressiveness’ by negotiating a frank synthesis of bioscience, psychology, sociology, veiled history, theology, political science and transcendent views offered by wizened adepts of the human condition. In the end, the case is made for forensic departments of Ponerology.
