    Default what do you think about the idea that good always loses?

    what do you think about the idea that good always loses? whether its chaotic, neutral or lawful good, that it will always be defeated by evil because evil does not need to fight fair and can stoop to actions that, even if good could think of them, good could not use them?

    "Good can't win" is pure BS.

    Which is either projected by Evil or people who got lost or they are too intellectually lazy about this topic. It is true that good can lose but that isn't set in stone.

    I think it's a dumb idea.

    I think good runs deeper and is significantly more powerful. I have a lot of metaphysical experiences, and I feel a deep sense of balancing or justice towards which evil and cruelty doesn't stand a chance. Evil has a flailing, temporary aspect because it is so individual and doesn't connect in a meaningful way to anything outside of self. It is isolated and weak. It fights dirty, but in the end, after the control and trickery wears off, it fights completely alone.

    Also, perhaps we should define what "good" and "evil" are. They do, believe it or not, mean different things to different folks. By "Evil" I would say , you would mean corrupt, two faced, lying people with selfish intentions. "Good", I guess, would be people who hold their own but also go out of their way to help others and their causes....It is actually very hard to pinpoint "good" and ""evil" for me ;-)
    But i feel it is a balance, like Ravenetta has mentioned. Sometimes evil wins, and sometimes good wins. It just depends of different factors.

    well i mean the sentiment makes sense. that if you don't need to fight fair, it's easier. it doesn't mean that good will always lose, but it means it's often harder to win that way.

    I don't think so. I used to not always be so sure.

    Good and evil do not exist. Realistically, both sides are just as dirty. One is more idealistic, the other nihilistic.

    I'd say sounds more realistic tbh.

    But if it is dirty can this really good ? Or is this evil vs. evil ?

    Did it ever occurred to you that good isn't fundamentally about fighting ? I mean that there are other way of winning that don't go through fighting.
