Evil - its power comes from human beings

Faced with the misfortunes humanity is suffering, people everywhere are complaining that the world is in a terrible state. They talk, they criticise, they protest and become irritated; and while they are preoccupied with their arguments, complaints, and anger, evil continues its course of action. In their opinion, God is responsible, since he does nothing to stop it, despite their prayers. I have often told you that the so-called devil has one quality, and only one, but it is an extraordinary quality: he is active, energetic, and tireless, whereas people are weak and tire quickly. They think it is enough to be kind and inoffensive; when they have done a few good deeds, they are satisfied with themselves and then must rest. Who knows when they will get back to work. Good does not stimulate them in the same way that evil stimulates criminals. But whose fault is that? It is not God who prevents them from cultivating generosity and selflessness and working for the good of all their fellow human beings.
