To make things seem simpler, rather than doing 'evil' vs 'good' in a spectrum. Do 'good' vs 'non-good'.

In order for goodness to exist, non-goodness (or evil) should exist.

The 'non-goodness' is a spectrum since obviously certain non-good things that people do is a lot worse than other 'non-good' things people do.

Scarcity a factor in Evil.

Rich people Evil because the scares in life expectancy, they don't live forever.

why Iblees evil? It does not have the total freedom, ie heaven, free from Allah.

To prevent evil is with good morality and abundance of human needs. Life extension technology also a way to prevent evil.
