Good versus Evil - we all do bad things at some point

I do not think there could ever be a world where there is just good, that is unimaginable. I also cannot think of a world that would be purely evil, I would imagine such a world would cease to exist because it would consume itself.

Wait a minute, earth slowly dying and edging ever closer to extinction. This year being 2012 there has been a lot of talk about the end of the world, the apocalypse, doomsday. According to some by the end of this year we will all be pushing daises, neighbours to the dinosaurs.

What does that have to do with being evil or doing bad things you might ask...think about it we are selfish creatures for years we have been destroying what ever is around us to make sure that are lives are so simplified that we hardly have to lift a nail, on our way to developing our world we have killed each other, enslaved each other, belittled each other. We have killed off so many species of animals and plants, made natural land concrete and uninhabitable to wildlife. We still to this day exploit each other using kids to do adult labour while overworking and underpaying them.

Most people care more about material things then the well being of others in their communities, towns, cities, states. We have seen nations commit genocide, watch other nations bomb others with atom bombs which still have an effect on the environment and the people who live around the affected places till this day. We would kill for money, uncles rape nieces. Heck most rape victims know the person who raped them. Men beat their women instead of protecting them. Children are sold as sex slaves and traded around the world, child trafficking happens even in times of disaster when we should be helping each other in times of need when people are at their most vulnerable.

Evil is everywhere its always lurking, you collect enemies without even realising, most of your enemies are not known to you. Your enemies the villains wait to strike when you least expect it, when you are most vulnerable. We all do some sort of wrong as some point, we stab our friends in the back and sleep with their wives/girlfriends, we lie to people while we take advantage of them. We sleep with girls who are so drunk they would sleep with any guy. We drug people and make them do things they would not do otherwise. Man is evil and this evil is within all of us, we all have the potential to do evil. It is up to us whether to act on our hatred or forgive who ever has wronged us. Evil consumes you if you let it in, it changes who you are and the lenghts you would go to, to get what you want.

On the other hand there is a lot good out there, there is as much good as there is evil and bad things, well no everywhere. There are people fighting for the good and well being of all humans out there, there are organisations and individuals within our communities who try to bring out the best in our youth so that they have bright futures ahead, away from crime and poverty. There are people fighting for equal rights of men and women, people fighting for the kids out there. Well theres no one fighting for the men because men are the usual perpetrators when it comes to doing bad things to the world, women and children. There are religious organisations out there trying to make a change that is positive to the world. And in the past decade or so there are people out there who are dedicated to changing how we see the world, its people, creatures and plant life when its comes to saving our earth and development that is not only good for humans but is also environmentally safe and brings minimal or no harm to nature.

 I am not sure whether the world will end this year but what I am sure of is that in order to live well with others, and have a healthy relationship with those around you, you have to have good intentions. Doing bad things does not get you happiness, it spreads pain and more hate around, hate and evil is a destructive disease we would all be better off without.
