Forgive the kindergarten touch to this entry, but I still don't get it. Not after more than 2 decades of what can be safely called an existence. What is good, what is bad?
Ok as children we are taught 'God is good, the devil is bad'. Well, I have met neither so I won't pass any judgement on that.
Fine let's try another, 'Truth is good, lies are bad'. Yes, we come in truth, live in truth and die cradled in the arms of the truth!(There is more sarcasm to that statement than actuall truth.)
But still, despite our shortcomings, we are good. We are the best species in the world.
What about murder, corruption,sheer debauchery, perversion, destruction, causing harm to our own kind and to other species? No that's just an occupational hazard that comes with being human!
Good and Bad. Defined by the 'oh so advanced, so priveleged humans'. Do we really have the right to coo at something that feels right and call it 'good'? (What feels right needn't always be right. If you don't believe me look around and see. When people bully each other, to the bully it feels right, but is it right?)
'Good' is just a measure of how much a thing is favoured by public opinion. Yes, if tomorrow the crowd says 'legalize crime', believe me it will be done.
Remember the Lord's prayer ? 'Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven'. Doesn't everyone on this planet think that they're God sometime or the other? As for the heaven part, most people think they are going there by default.
So tell me once again. What is good and what is bad?
