  1. Evil and good are defined depending on the coordinate system that a person or group of people adheres to. For monotheists, evil and good are determined by God and His law, for pagans, good and evil are what serves the race or harms it, for Confucians-what creates or destroys society, etc.

  2. The absoluteness of evil is possible only if it is transformed into a norm – a social regulator given to all members of society from above – by law, religion, etc. But then it is necessary to speak not about evil, but about crime, sin, etc. This happens when such phenomena become a dogma, an order.

  3. People's opinions about evil are relative. The real evil is absolute. It is not necessary for anyone, it interferes with everyone, it would be better if it did not exist at all. Evil is the destruction of the harmony of the world.

  4. Some actions are evil for everyone. For whom is it not evil to be killed or robbed?

    Also, some actions are good for anyone. For whom will it not be good if they save their life or, for example, help to sort out their debts?

    So evil is not always relative.

  5. Evil is the absence of good. How do I measure the absence? And how to find the absolute absence? It is not a question of objective evil-good, but of its evaluative perception. It is impossible to logically establish the absoluteness or relativity of objective reality from a subjective assessment.
