agree, but some people have less of it than others/it is way below the surface on some (ralph), and closer to the surface on others, (Jack).

I agree, civilization is the protection from that evil. But the evil is bigger within some than others. Roger is much eviler than Ralph for instance


I don't think the kids are evil other than maybe jack because he's so mean.

I say we ALL have evil within us.
