No concious provides limitless evil because it requires no human purpose or cause. Bad concious implies it comes from a human notion and a human limit can be applied. I believe the universal potential for evil far exceeds the natural human capacity.

I have to go to court Monday to enforce my divorcee agreement. In thinking about it, I realized he has no conscience.

Ignorance of right v wrong is dangerous on a level that is indescribable.

But sometimes it's out of willful ignorance. In that case, yes. It is detrimental.

For reference, Nietzsche describes "bad conscience" as the instincts of cruelty, hostility and destruction.

These characterized our pre-historic lives had to be suppressed when we entered into society. Now people have no rightful outlet for them; exercising them violated rules of civilized society.
