EVIL: A Matter of Intent

Evil is the violation of our common humanity. Human morality requires direct action against evil. Can we develop a society able to embrace selfless acts and behavior to benefit others irrespective of harm to one s person or interests?  The Peace Corps, Medecins sans Frontieres, Southern Poverty Law Center, Habitat for the Humanity, Meals on Wheels, amongst many others, strive to defeat evil.

The artists in this exhibition as do many of us, have a vision of how to proceed. Less rhetoric. More action. It is up to each and every one of us to wage war on evil.
