The Good, The Bad, The Evils

Good is what is for the betterment of everyone besides yourself (for all of mankind), as well as you. Good maintains the order of all things, and is reason for happiness, the simple joys of community, sharing, giving & charity.

Evil is what opposes such a betterment for all peoples, and is what rather does harm to yourself, or to that of all others besides you, that means any harm being brought to anyone can be considered a bad thing, no matter if it was human caused, natural in occurrence, or divine in nature.

Some evils in mankind seem to have another derivative, stemming from the term known as necessary evils, which tends to be a sort of distraction from the truth, because some people claim it to be for the right of all of humanity this "Necessary Evil".

Hence many justifiable wars against humanity, via enemy vs defender, axis vs alies, conqueror, avenger, by means of retaliation, survival status or need for precious resources, land occupation, revenge, self defence, and many other theme's, which also leads to the concept of the lesser of two evils principle. Which according to wikipedia is "The lesser evil or lesser of two evils principle is the idea in politics and political science that of two bad choices, one isn't as bad as the other, and should be chosen over the one that is a greater threat."link ref(wikipedia commons)

Thinking along the lines of what's the difference between both good and evil, has driven me to produce a 3 part hub series here, to provide my perspective on the subject and many intriguing historical findings on wikipedia. I do know that much of it has to do with how society views everything as a whole, because the laws are ever changing, and people will adapt newer views depending on all the trends.

Psychology is that all time study of how the mind is configured to perceive reality, and so humanity will adhere to that which is the latest trend, whether it was deemed at one time or another to be a Good thing or Bad thing. I'll provide here many differing perspective, and draw together views from all sides as to attempt at explaining in full depth how a person may be able to detect the differences between what is deemed to be Good vs Evil.

What is Good & Evil

Knowing what's a good action, and knowing what's a bad one, will definitely make all the difference in ones life, the issue for most people is, we're they taught the right things about it all.

There's laws, morals, codes of ethics, rules and regulations of a nation, church, religion, family, community, a society, and even divine judgement also known as universal laws.

Could it be all of these that play the true contending factors and roles that are used to constitute such given jurisdictions, that are to make up what's to be perceived as right or wrong views in a persons mind. "The Good the bad & the ugly." All evil doers surely deserve the right to know, for they're the very reason such a hub has become possible, and why any subjectively stated as a good deed, can become justifiable and seen as being a right thing to do or not.


Laws meant to be broken?

  • Once a regulation or justifiable law of a given society is broken, the activation of detection, and quarantine or investigation is initiated, and judicial punishment may take place, or on higher levels of violation will begin to stir.
  • Ultimately conjuring up an even more severe form of retaliatory actions, in attempts to put an end to such unrighteous deeds or evils being done against a single human, community, society, or nation of people.
  • This only occurs if such things as man-made ideals have been set in place, and been enforced prior to any occurrence, and by a highly organized governing body, such as that of a Democratic society.

Extracting all the remaining facts from Fiction of Idealism-

When you think about it all, well logically speaking, yes they're all true factors (the ones listed up above, second paragraph), but what about for those people who haven't yet learned to grasp onto the concepts of right and wrong, and all the formalities that govern each given structural ideal, earlier mentioned.

That of the most basic ideals or idealism's in society all have a specific and true purpose, as to literally attempt at holding in place both mentally & physically, a sort of balance beam, which suggests to an individual set guidelines to follow, for the enforcing of given laws & order into a specific community, also known as self discipline. This is also followed by disciplinary actions if these individuals choose not to abide by such regulatory means, such as in learning to read the terms of service here on hubpages, or in any religious group, government program, local township, or cities underlining rules.

All these varying ideals of a social nature, are all attempting to try and make people aware, as well as subject to their core values of justice, accountability, integrity, responsibility, morality & righteousness.

Many ideals have constructed the law & legal systems, such that people become forced to adhere to such mandated rulings or guidelines, mainly by setting examples to others if the legislated laws, or regulations are broken at will, by any individual or group of individuals even if its unknowingly or innocent in nature. So to sort of extract good and evil from this true reality of Idealism, is like trying to squeeze a bucket of water out of a single orange, it just doesn't work.


Weapons are actually tools

Movies also used negative imagery of firearms, to convey the connection of Good and Bad to its viewers, and still does to this day, viewers discretion is advised though by the adult rating of such movies

True Purpose of Good & Bad views or perspectives

The purpose for any written article, document, book, law, or given set of rules, or demonstrated display of symbolic signs of any human form, regarding such about a person doing a good deed or doing a bad one. is the obeying of these given parameters.

Once provided in the form of delegated justice, virtue, idealism, or any discipline for wrong doings, it quickly becomes realized by both the passive and active observer, and visually pertinent to the viewer whom comes in contact with such. Our free will comes at a high price, and depending on our personal choices, to play fair or not with others in our daily lives. Also a usage of discretion quickly comes into play depending on the severity of the responsibility one sets in place of themselves, such as the usage of a weapon as a tool.

To oppose such regulated inferences as stated above, is to also infer that this person has dis-obeyed a direct order, and thus falls under the labeling categories suggested by such regulatory factors, and consequences thereof & no matter the society their living within or under the authority of.

Many people may play the role of the victim, and that of the accused, as well as that of the villain, or one with criminal intent. Victim is perceived as being good and is protected by man-made laws, and the criminal is seen as the evil doer and is penalized based on their wrong doing, as well as judged by their peers of the community if detection, and prosecution is to commence after questioning, and or evidence provided to sustain such accusations.

Victimized by a criminal minded individual or group - (Evil Doers)

This makes life and our many freedoms to choose what we do daily, become subject to such particulars of judgement by others, therefore due to a physical feedback mechanism put in place even prior to us all being born.

Many examples of such well established feedback systems, for consequential bad occurrences and happenings. The breaking of any mandated rules or laws is a harsh reality today and the failure to pay bills motivates people to break them. What tends to follow thereafter for breaking rules and regulations is court summons, arrest warrants, exile, seizures, facing payment of fines, criminal indictments and loads more legal issues. This all falls under the grounds of where evil in society has depicted things to turn out, and does indeed occur in most societies on earth today.

This truth is also due to the facts that something has already occurred, because of human interaction of a potential violent nature, which needs some light to be shed upon it, and hence the Good & Evil labeling process taking place as well as major precedence & play here quickly after the occurrence, and in the event of any incident, accident, ill intended happening on part of any member of society.



Three part series

How science has made its mark on the world and religion opposes its many proofs, giving rise to controversy, and much difficulty in determining right from wrong, good or bad, and the true definitions behind evil.

Religions role all throughout history in the Good vs Evil game, and the countless issues that humanity faces in dealing with morality due to many social factors.
