The "Wicked" son is described as the one who does not consider himself as having suffered in Egypt. Why is this wicked, you might ask? It displays a lack of empathy. One who does not feel empathy for his family is also one who does not for the greater world. Thus, one who does not care for the restraints of others, who knows of unjust prohibition and does nothing, is wicked. We must strive to be unlike the "Wicked" and care for others.
