    Nothing is inherently good or bad; It's all relative interpretation and based ones' value system.

    I tend to be of the mindset that everything equalizes in the end. That you can't have a good thing without a bad thing and visa versa. Same goes for a lot of opposites. They kind of coexist together- one can not survive without the other.

    I dont think so, there's objective good and evil the same as there's objective natural laws besides what man thinks of them, gravity doesnt go away because you dont believe in it, its not generated by the human mind or suspended by it. The same goes for good and evil. The best value systems have sought to discover the good and evil that exist and teach accordingly, not to invent either or suppose they are inventions.

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    It depends all on how you define "good" and "bad".

    I think people just tend to hyperfocus on the bad, rather than the good. Bad is more memorable, it seems. So when something bad happens, it sticks with people. When something good happens, it may make them happy for some time, but then they forget about it more quickly. At least that is my perception of people in general. This is why a lot of people have the impression that there is more good than bad in the world.

    I don't know, i'll have to have a think. You could approach this from many different angles.
    I like to believe there is a lot of good, if we can use the word good.
