The Reverend's focus on economics as a dominant, determining factor in "what happens" is right on.

An important connecting factor which we must "wake up" to as peoples everywhere is "Economic Discrimination Before the Law" [otherwise known as "He who has the gold makes the rules."

Until the unholy connection between economic disparities and the work of making, observing, utilizing, and enforcing "the rules" — through law and legal means — is fully and squarely addressed; systemic violence and oppression (both conscious and unconscious) will continue to recycle in society through uncounted — and often uncountable pathways.

As to the subject of evil, a liberating understanding we treat in The Vocabulary of Peace™ comes from the Germanic deep word root of evil: "upelo-" meaning, simply: "Exceeding the proper limit."

Good, on the other hand, comes from the Germanic root "ghedh-" meaning: "To unite, join fit...fitting, suitable," and we could also reasonably say: "fitting well together."
