“Why is it so hard to do something good while it’s so easy to do evil?”, an acquaintance wrote on his post. Perhaps, according to him, we’re naturally evil.
But I don’t think so. Doing evil things just appears to be so damn easy because no one’s required to do it, no one’s pressured to do it perfectly, unlike doing something good. It’s like you did something good but your “good” isn’t good enough for others. They like something better, something more perfect. Then you’ll think, “Oh, damn. You want something good? Do it yourself. I won’t do this anymore!”
Take the case of lying. Almost everyone lies. But not everyone’s great in it. Lying requires high skills! One little hole in your simple lie, you’re gonna have a lot of problems.
I really find it absurd that unskilled liars love to lie. Of course I don’t tell them “You’re lying to me!”. I don’t know why but I just act as if I believe them. “Yea, yea. Sure”. Even though my thought bubble is “You lied. And now your story isn’t consistent to what you said few days ago. Can you please practice your rotten skill in lying? Otherwise, don’t lie to me. You’re not so great. You don’t have the talent to create a new reality.”
It occurred to me that when an “evil” deed is done perfectly, smoothly, it isn’t viewed as evil anymore. Who will know you did something evil if it’s flawless and perfect? An evil deed done perfectly becomes reality.
So now, which is easier? To be good or evil? Evil, is far harder, if you’ll think about it. That’s the thing about evilness; You have to think, think, think. Obviously low-IQ people don’t have room in Evil Society.
