Good can't win?

How did this happen?

People have been fooled into believing only negative traits help survival. Liars, aggressors, thieves, etc. can survive, but people of principle? People who refuse to sink to the level of the bad guys? They are doooomed!

I think this delusion is caused by TV, books, and movies, where people in fictional situations can only be saved by fictional solutions.

If you act like the bad guys, what makes you believe you haven't become one of them? A difference which makes no difference isn't a difference.

The necessity of embracing the evil qualities to overcome adversity is no more realistic than the necessity to have a magic wand. But, I guess since evil is real and magic isn't, more people have fallen for that particular lie. It sounds "reasonable". Right?
