>>57391970>Possible reasons why?
Lower evil consists of entirely beastly urges, of rage and lust. The lowest evil is a man chasing after his dick or punching his wife to death in a fit of anger. The more complex and truly malevolent evil is more willing, more intentional, more machiavellian... more human. It is the kind of evil where a company moves to a third world country because property prices and labor costs are cheaper there, and uses the one water well a backwards village has for the production of its goods.>>57394007>(like how banking was hereitical, but eventually the Catholic Church legalized it because it made war too much money)
Yeah, they had some silly loopholes around it since at least the Templars. It wasn't usury because no individual Templar benefited from it, just the order as a whole. Also it wasn't banking, they were just "safekeeping" money for pilgrims. If it's not called usury God won't notice it, right?
