One Thing Humans Can Never Accept: Good People Are Often Wrong and Bad People Are Often Right

Good people are wrong all the time. Being good does not equal being right. Further, good people lie a lot. Many good people believe that it is not only morally acceptable but morally mandatory to lie for a good cause. I happen to highly disagree with that. When you politicize quotidian life to that extent, you end up with societies where everyone is lying about everything all the time. Sort of like modern day America. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I do not wish to live in a society that runs on lies.

Bad people, even horrible people, are often right and not just about whether it is day or night. Being a horrible person has nothing to do with whether you are right or not. Many a human monster has been right about all sorts of things.

I do not know why it is, but almost 100% of humans cannot seem to wrap their heads around this idea that good people can be wrong (this one is easier) but particularly that bad people can be right, even regularly right. That causes some sort of horrible cognitive dissonance that almost everyone simply cannot handle.

    Right, no argument here. I mean, I’d have to say SJWs have a good heart, but a lot of times they are highly mislead – basing things on emotion rather than logic (though, tbh, racial identity politics (including the white type) does the same).
