I am a person who could never understand the concept of good and evil. One day, I was watching ‘The Originals’, when a character said that “The world isn’t awful. People are not awful. They want to be good. Something makes them bad, something breaks them down, makes them snap.” For a long time, I believed this. But there comes a stage that life is so haywire that you do not know anything. You don’t even want to know anything. You procrastinate your own thoughts and living in denial seems like a better option than facing the reality.
But obviously, that could not be done forever. So, I too, had to think about it. Before this point, I had this concept straight and clear in my head.
“The world isn’t split into good people and death eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside of us. What matters is the part we choose to act on.” - Sirius black
So this means we can switch between good and bad and nobody is purely good or bad. But if we go by this theory. Then why do some people gain joy by doing evil things? Where does the good part go?
