There are different kinds of corruption, and many of them DO in fact mean evil. Corruption by temptation/sin/evil and thus BECOMING evil is a classic story element used throughout the ages, and for good reason: It's based in reality. Given that 1) people aren't born evil, and 2) people can become evil, it follows then that 3) something must change (read: corrupt) people to turn them to evil. But that doesn't mean they had no choice in the matter!And don't tell me that no one is truly "evil." They most definitely CAN be evil enough to earn the label. I don't care if the mass-murdering villain of the story had a horrible childhood. I don't care if somewhere deep down there's some good in his blackened heart. If he's out there committing genocide, he's EVIL. There's something valid to the "shades of gray" thing, but all too often it's just a cop out to avoid labeling evil as what it is.
