If good deeds were immediately rewarded and bad deeds promptly punished would life be better?


I ofter hear judgements about whether a matter or good or bad rendered on the basis of outcomes. Such judgments assume a "yes" to the question above. But might a good deed have a negative outcome and visa versa?

    Interesting -- I would say calling a question someone asked: "The question is childish and unrealistic and there is no possible answer". Is a bad thing, black and white. Only stupid answers is what I was taught.

    Today as I was leaving my house, a neighbor walking her dog talked my ear off about dogs and baking for 20 minutes! I have no dogs and hate baking but was just trying to be "nice" by just saying hello & waving. She couldn't leave it at that.

    Reminds me of science fiction where the "criminal" is arrested before he even commits a crime.
