Does evil exist?

lt maureenUnfortunately, I believe it does. I think when the Universe was created there was no evil. Human beings are greedy, and I think that that’s where evil comes from. I think that religions try to prevent evil, people but they also reinforce it by saying dont be evil or you'll go to hell. I believe that we have to teach people not to be evil, which is sad.

Yes. A government that allows its soldiers to kill women, children and the elderly is evil. The American government walks in a dark way, and it's not good for them or their people. But the American people are nice. I have a lot of friends from there and my best friend is like a brother to me, and he's American.

No, I don’t think evil exists because you can see many awful acts in the world that aren't related to what people do and that’s just sort of how the world works. I guess as humans we kind of say if there's evil or good. I'd say that’s just life.

I was asked this when I was 14 and I thought maybe just fleas, tics and mosquitos were evil. Now I think it's only some humans. The greedy ones that profit from war, that exploit men, women and children, people that have too much but can’t stop filling their pockets. Monsanto is a very evil company, I call them Monsatan. The Cheneys, the Rumsfelds, the Mubaraks of the world. Power and greed corrupts. It's a disease.

Yes. Evil must exist because good exists. There has to be an oppposing force for everything—yin and the yang. So it's a balancing act. In order for something to be evil there must be good, and vice versa as a comparison.

Cardinal signs mark the seasons of change, initiating new realities.


Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.

Then they moved up here from Santa Monica five years ago, and bought the Aptos location (there’s a separate one in Watsonville) from the family who owned it for two decades.


How would you feel about a tech industry boom in Santa Cruz?

I feel like it would ruin the small old-town feeling of Santa Cruz. It wouldn’t be the same Surf City kind of vacation town that it is. Antoinette BennettSanta Cruz | Construction Management
