Yes. That covers pretty much everything. The only trouble is, almost nobody actually believes they are evil, or that what they're doing is evil — even the people who are doing the most evil in the world. Vlad the Impaler, Hitler, Pol Pot (etc) all believed they were doing the right thing. Scary thought, no?
I've always liked this quote:
"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing." — Albert Einstein
In other words, it's up to US to speak up and do something about it.
