Where's evil?

This quote is from Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.'s book Mother Night.

    "There are plenty of good reasons for fighting," I said, "but no good reason ever to hate without reservation, to imagine that God Almighty Himself hates with you, too. Where's evil? It's that large part of every man that wants to hate without limit, that wants to hate with God on its side. It's that part of every man that finds all kinds of ugliness so attractive.
    "It's that part of an imbecile," I said, "that punishes and vilifies and makes war gladly."
