One of my favorite quotes Of All Time:
"Goodness is to Evil like Building is to Destroying, and the first is much more demanding than the second; good and evil are in the hands of the powerful , but those who do good are greater, even if they don't often get noticed and work in the shadows. Remember that humanity advances on their shoulders."
what da ya think ? True or Not so True
I can identify with it's overall meaning. Hence, I can discern truth from it.
But then again, I could also take the view point that the powerful of good, if given absolute power, would still be corruptible. Thus, individual rights and freedoms must remain guarded.
The powerful good people who work in those shadows, believe it or not, are doing the most dangerous work of all those who do work.
The powerful evil, selfish and corruptible, seek full and complete domination or rule over others. There are plenty of good people to combat the evil, and usually good wins out.
Just my thoughts.
Nice View Cagsil , yeah I like that Thats why Humanity advances through good
