People, good and bad

Just like good people can do bad things, bad people can do good things. Even really bad guys can sometimes do the right thing.

Doing one bad thing won't necessarily make a good person bad, not if it can be rectified and doesn't become a pattern, nor will doing one good thing make a bad person good.

However, if you keep doing bad things you will stop being a good person pretty fast- much faster than a bad person who keeps doing good things will become a good person.

Bad can contain more good before it becomes good, than good can contain bad.

It's that whole "In any compromise between food and poison, death always wins" thing.

So, if you want to be a good person, it is pretty important to avoid doing bad things, because it's a lot harder to regain your good than to lose it.

A big "thank you!" to supporters of this blog. I probably couldn't keep doing this without you.


  1. Absolutely brilliant Kent!!!!
    Perfectly concise and articulate.
    Thank you so much for this post, and all the other material you have shared over the years.

    1. Now, see, this was something I considered the opposite of articulate. I thought probably no one would read it without getting lost. I'm glad you managed!
