The Burden of Being Good

NagasakibombThought for the day – If you are going to declare your side good and right, you must be held to the highest standards of conducting yourself ONLY by what is good and right.  That means good and right for all mankind – not just what is required for self-preservation.  Being on the side of goodness and rightness means that the playing field is tipped against you, and yet your side will never act against what is good and right to tip it back.  To act counter to goodness and rightness in order to level the playing field disqualifies you from wearing the labels good and right.

Justifying wrong in the name of right is evil’s greatest deceit.
