Am I a Good Person?

Are You?

am i a good person, what makes a good person, are justice warriors good people, why are people evil, what makes a person bad
Only in Death

‘Do you think you are a good person?’

‘No…’

Yes… Let’s ponder that for a moment.

Someone that says they are good are judging themselves above suspicion. That is to say, they are the type to be both judge and jury, but even more so, to have a kingly air of feeling above the law.

We all have a dark side.

It is the role of those that think they are good to purge the evils of others in the fire of their self-righteousness.

The self-righteous will watch the world burn to make it a ‘better’ place.

What we have to understand is that these people don’t see the evil in what they do. They feel they are a warrior of justice.

We are all just walking each other home.

When this feeling of truth gets capitalized, they don’t mind how much they destroy, or who they hurt, in their morally-justified war.
