A sample image

Mr. Stolyarov elucidates on an important and often overlooked distinction among ideas, actions, and people. Ideas can be true or false. Actions can be right or wrong. People can be good or evil. Often, these terms are conflated and applied where they should not be. This can lead to decent people being called evil simply because they happen to hold some false ideas or engage in occasional wrong actions. This video urges its viewers to refrain from judging others as evil unless a preponderance of wrong actions of such a magnitude as to completely counterbalance the person’s right actions can be observed.
