This is as "Marxist-taken-to-irrational-extreme" as it gets.  I think Pol Pot showed us what is wrong with this kind of thinking.  Modern Communist societies recognize that people evolved into what they are and changing the social environment won't change the people and how they evolved.  The idea now is to understand all this and to create things that take advantage of the way people are, even their less desirable characteristics.
Indeed.... This is what capitalist theory has attempted to do. People are what they are. Lets try to maximize the benefits from their behavior and minimize the damage. What other options do we have? Before someone goes on an anti capitalist rant, in nearly all cases the theory is grossly not applied properly.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

Maybe one day the world as we know it will only exist in fairy tells and the horrors which are so real will be the descriptions of hell that people will refuse to believe in.

Why does evil exist?

Simple because people do not understand how consent works......

Please...what are you talking about? Got your self together.

Consent - the permission to do something. It doesn't matter what you do as an action to somebody else; Give somebody food, punch in the face, save their life, if they do not give you permission, the action is evil.
It's the most practical way to figure out what is actually evil. Consent is something you have to keep in mind even before the Golden Rule. When in doubt simply ask. If they say no, do not do it.
There would be exceptions like with children who do not know enough about the world yet or people who are unable to give proper consent for any possible reason be it drugs, illness, etc.
