Good Vs Evil – Why it pays to be Good…

Both evil and good do things in the name of good.
No evil person has ever said: “I want to do evil.”

If both good and evil speak the same language, how does one tell them apart?

Here is the litmus test.

Does the living thing which receives the “good” deed feel happy about it?
Is the “good” deed considered legal by the court of law?
What will the general population say about this “good” deed?

If the litmus test fails at any level it identifies an evil deed.

Some “evil”, like say killing a chicken for consumption, while evil to the life being killed, is acceptable by general society and thus not widely condoned. Killing that same chicken for the sport of killing or for “fun” or via torture is seen as unacceptable and deemed a true evil deed.

Evil people are people who do evil things occasionally, and without regard to what others might think. Their primary motivation is self gratification.

Evil has other forms like cruelty, meanness, rudeness, being selfish, etc…

Why be good?

While evil lurks in many places, and we have an equal change of running into it, the probability of running into evil increases if you are also a source of evil. Likewise your probability of running into evil decreases if you do no evil.

Let me explain. If you do evil, the good makes a mental note never to deal with you again. Only other evil minds more accepting of your evil deeds remain around you. Its only a matter of time when these evil minds do evil onto you. As time goes on, and as less and less good surrounds you, you are surrounded by more evil and you are more prone to be subject to be recipient of evil deeds than good deeds.
