I liked what Caputo said about obligations and how we are supposed to answers the call of our obligations. Everyone is going to have a different calling or obligation and that’s what makes up the good and the evil in the world. So in saying that I have to disagree with what he said about how there is no good or evil, but only in between. The reason I disagree is because I thinks it’s because of the obligations we choose to follow and take care of is what takes us closer to good or evil as we see it. For instance, some crazy mass murder decides to go on a killing spree. That’s not stuck between good and evil that IS evil. So for some reason unbeknownst to us he had an obligation in his mind to kill people and he chose to answer that obligation rather then turning from it.
