the axioms of evil

i propose to axiomatize evil, the better to understand it and thereby squelch it.

1. axiom of choice: we choose whether or not to do evil.
2. axiom of plenitude: there's plenty of potential evil.
3. axiom of intensionality: no matter how good we are, there is evil within us.
4. axiom of interference: our perceived self-interest interferes with our ability to judge what is evil.

as i have not been able to prove completeness in this theory, it's possible that more axioms will need to be added.
