If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.…During the life of any heart this line keeps changing place; sometimes it is squeezed one way by exuberant evil and sometimes it shifts to allow enough space for good to flourish. One and the same human being is, at various ages, under various circumstances, a totally different human being. At times he is close to being a devil, at times to sainthood. But his name doesn’t change, and to that name we ascribe the whole lot, good and evil.

I disagree…while no one is perfect, it is misguided nationalism or religious zealotry or some other flawed ideology that often gets “good” people into doing some evil deeds. That being said “good” people should be guided by a moral compass which prevents them from falling into said flawed ideology.
