Man, what a great book.
Yeah, I think I know what Magician's getting at. The Judge understands "moral law" is a human thing, and maybe we should think about "Evil" as a humanly subjective thing, too. Man's creation.
He's certainly violent, violent and deadly and terrifying, a remorseless murderer and rapist.
But he did seem to me the definition of what we think of as evil. If he's not that, I'm not sure what he is.
