1. Malevolent actions rise not only from malevolent intentions 1.a (The choice of the word "malevolent" vs e.g. "harmful" is very much intended)

2. So a malevolent being is not defined as a being of ill-intent, but by, its actions

3. Consequently, to understand one's malevolence (or benevolence) is to understand the effects of one's actions. 3.a. Therefore the only weapon against malevolence (or, in general, the only tool for ensuring intent results in effect) is an understanding of one's self's place in the Universe
