“No person knowingly does evil, and therefore, all evil is ignorance.”


I think that Socrates’ conclusion is valid, but is ultimately false. This type of argument is setup to automatically make the person stating it right, even if it has false premesis. Although, I can understand where this conclusion is coming from. In many cases, a person becomes so angry, or confused in a situation they can temporarily lose control, or even sanity, but this is not always the case.  Overall, I disagree with this conclusion.  I feel that some individuals know exactly what they are doing when they commit evil. There are some people who feel what they are doing, even though it is evil, is right. Also, evil sometimes gives individuals happiness. These people may be sick and need professional help and rehabilition. Regardless,it proves Sulcrates’ conclusion, and  I do not believe it to be true.




If people believed that all evil is ignorance, the justice system would change dramatically. Everyone could plead temporary insanity, or go around sentencing using this conclusion. They could say that they did not know what they were doing was wrong. Although it may be true for some people, the ones who it is not true for would not suffer the consequences for what they have done. Lawyers would use this statement to get their client off the hook. It would be a huge loop hole in the justice system. Families and victims would not be served justice.  Prison sentencing would probably consist of short sentencing, and be based mainly on misdemeanors. How could a judge prosecute someone if they were unaware wht they were doing was evil. At the most, they would get a slp on the wrist with the least amount of sentencing. The death senetence would probably never be used. There would be no way for them to be convicted of a crime if they “did not know what they were doing was evil”.
