A law of nature is at work here. Evil is not destructive to the good alone but inevitably destroys itself as well. For evil, which lives solely by negation, cannot continue to exist on its own strength alone. The inferior man himself fares best when held under control by a superior man.
The dark power at first held so high a place that it could wound all who were on the side of good and of the light. But in the end it perishes of its own darkness, for evil must itself fall at the very moment when it has wholly overcome the good, and thus consumed the energy to which it owed its duration.

Most know the quote,"Evil exists because good men do nothing."
Which is more evil, the evil men that exist in the world or the good men that sit idly by and watch ?
Or the men that make excuses for the evil that exist in the world.

“Traveling through the world produces a marvelous clarity in the judgment of men. We are all of us confined and enclosed within ourselves, and see no farther than the end of our nose. This great world is a mirror where we must see ourselves in order to know ourselves. There are so many different tempers, so many different points of view, judgments, opinions, laws and customs to teach us to judge wisely on our own, and to teach our judgment to recognize its imperfection and natural weakness.”
Michel de Montaigne quotes
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree,
there will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see,
there will be an answer. let it be.
Let it be, let it be, .....
And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light, that shines on me,
shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
Let it be, let it be,
"Evil exists because good men do nothing."
Evil is like a shadow - it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it. Shakti Gawain, teacher and author
A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it. William Penn, Quaker, founder of Pennsylvania
This the Quaker who "Found Pensylvania" only determined the Good by personal gain. Taking advantage of Tribes who had no knowledge of the purpose to "OWN" land or anything by any owning value. He called and deamed his own good by collecting and keeping peace for his own gain in resource. Is this what good is? One would find it Evil, but to those whom gained from his efforts remain and called him a lord to the land of which he was claimed to have "FOUND". I would rather be in the Evil if it is Good. Those whom stay idle I find more peasing, because they worry about nothing.

Oh I am no more god than evil. I the same help out the poor, but just saying humanity all does things for their own bennifit. When I help out I personally do not gloat from my doings, but I feel better myself. Is this good or should I feel nothing when helping just do it?
