“There is evil in your bones” (18). For his entire life, Equality has been frowned upon his physical and intellectual differences.

Before Faust was going after young girls and killing their brothers, he was an older-man, a scholar who kept to himself in his tower. He didn't align himself to any religion but was an interesting character that always wanted more from life so he was a hot topic between Mephistopheles and God.

Revelation 3:15-16, “I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot!
While people believe kneeling during the National Anthem is disrespecting the country 's ideals, I believe kneeling during the National Anthem is not disrespectful. The United States is not living up to its ideals of freedom, liberty, and justice for all no matter their race. Athletes are bringing awareness by a peaceful protest, which is protected under the first amendment for those who are oppressed. My cousin, a veteran, has also influenced my view on this situation. Seeing my own family member put their life in danger to save millions of others does not add up to someone kneeling on the sideline during the National Anthem.
In the words of David Gemmell, “there is evil is all of us, and it is the mark of a man how he defies the evil within.” The beast in the novel starts as a symbol of fear and something that was ignored but ends up creating chaos and representing evil. In William Golding 's, Lord of the Flies, the boys making fun of the little boy for being scared of the beastie and the boys doubting Sam and Eric, Simons hallucination, and Simon 's death are evidence that show the evil and ignorance in the boys. There are many signs of ignorance towards the beast in the novel. One example of ignorance towards the beast is when the boys made fun of the little boy for being scared of the beast. When the little boy brought up the beast the first time, the older boys, “laughed and cheered,” (Golding.

Alan Platon once said, “There is only one way in which one can endure man’s inhumanity to man and this is to try, in one’s own life, to exemplify man’s humanity to man.” Over the course of history it is very easy to see that man’s own worst enemy is often man himself. This can be seen during the Crusades or during the reign of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany. In Night, Elie Wiesel shows how man can be so inhumane to his fellow man through his experience in the Holocaust. He also shows how one can step above this and not let inhumanity tear him apart. Mitch Albom talks about humanity and inhumanity in a different light in Tuesdays with Morrie.
Jean Jaques Rousseau was partially correct in his statement that all are born good, however, society creates images of bad people. Man is born evil because of his desire for possession and hunger for power, shown throughout current events and recent news.

The book Lord of the Flies by William Golding illustrates the characteristics of evil very well. Golding illustrates the chaos on the island through the actions of the boys and their digression from civilization.
