Malice is a legal term referring to a party's intention to do injury to another party. Malice is either expressed or implied. Malice is expressed when there is manifested a deliberate intention unlawfully to take away the life of a human being. Malice is implied when no considerable provocation appears, or when the circumstances attending the killing show an abandoned and malignant heart (source: Wikipedia).

Malice can exist if harmful acts are done with "reckless indifference" or self-inflicted neglect of the knowledge of inability to defend or prevent medical injury.

In other words, from a social standpoint, malice is behaviorally related to moral apathy. As we know from the complex world of psychiatry, moral apathy is somewhat related to depression and attention deficit disorder, illnesses that degrade a human's ability to focus on cooperative behavior prioritization. Many social groups have equated malice with the spiritual concept of "wrath."

The intriguing Hollywood (USA) movie "Malice" (1993) explores the behavioral concept of malice from a social and spiritual standpoint as presented through a complex story of a malice-prone doctor arguing for the profitability of arrogance, apathy, and obsession.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
