What’s good, what’s bad? Looks pretty deep to me. I don’t know how deep I am in this weird dilemma of separating the both. Separate? Why should anyone do that? In any case no one’s ever can see your existing definitions except for your actions which might rely on your definitions. What actions, what definitions, no matter what the decision making process in your life will never cease. Only thing to keep in mind is when there is no place for good, good means bad.
For ages, the definitions or judgments whether a particular aspect is to be considered either good or bad is always dependent on the then existing society. Take for example the most common thing known to most people, terrorism. Terrorists attack against things that they think will harm people or they might work for their own benefits. The interesting aspect to look here is they are dying or killing for their own belief, in which they believe in. That’s what you or I is doing. That’s the main reason you wake up every day and start working for what you believe in or simply for your own benefit. It might be on a long term or short term work, but you do the same. Now if you observe in the current society terrorists are considered as a threat to the society itself.
Imagine a situation where the world is in its primitive stage, no government, no police, no terrorists, only humans and atmosphere. If someone wants something the one will get it or at least will try to get it and in that process lot of things might happen. The one may get it or not or it might be even lead to the one’s own or others death. If the other one is strong enough to resist it the one will loose and its fair, Survival of the fittest. But nowhere in this process hasn’t the judgment of good or bad come. Now imagine that something to be a fruit, then the act done by the one is considered as good in comparison to getting a fruit by killing the other one which is considered as bad. In both cases one wants fruit, but the path one decides in order to obtain the fruit is judged.
Years passed by, but the one is still being judged for killing the other one to get a fruit. Abruptly there is some news which came to light is that, the other one killed a lot of ones in the past. Instantaneously everything changes for one, everyone starts even offering fruits to the one. So, the one has done something good now, even though killing the other one was considered bad till the recent past. Actually years down the lane it turns out that the one is the one who killed a lot of ones and the other one and took help of some one in order to show that the other one is guilty. Now think of what you perceive as good and bad and cross question its origins as deep as possible or till see the basement of it.
