    Do all people agree with me if I say that the root of evil lies also within our own,...(that where not only GOOD or EVIL,...)

    But also: when you're attacked from out of the bleu,...just because you where in the way: according to my personal vieuw there's no such thing as a dogma that created that situation in the first place: ie: in wich you would have just yourself to blame,...

    what would YOUR solution look like :
    to root out this evilness in human kind and to finally have a nice world?

    Any idears?
    for expl: classes in enlightement all over the world?

    THAT is an excellent question. Short on time at the moment or I'd put in my two cents worth now.

    Perhaps later.

    I think saying that there is 'evil' in us is a bit too much..

    Probably 'evil actions' come from mechanisms inside us which are not 'evil' by themselves... such as self-defense and competition... survival of the indivual and survival of the species... These things are by themselves not bad things, they're even necessary for us to evolve... But depending on the environment such basis instinct can lead to actions that are considered evil...

    Do we understand what motivates us? No, because
    we go to great lengths to make sure that this is the case. Introspection is the first step to self-loathing. Self-loathing is the first step to improvement, alcoholism or suicide.
    Who the hell wants the world to be a nice place? What we really want is for the world to suck in an interesting way.
