Why do good people do bad things to good people?




Is it bad to be obedient, or

is that just a good person doing what they are told?

Why do good people do bad things to other good people?

Can a person be good if they have done a bad thing to another person,

knowing that the thing they have done is bad?

And does that ‘good’ person still believe themselves to be ‘good’, knowing that what they did to another was bad?

Does that ‘good’ person, who did a bad thing, pat themselves on the back and say:

Well done, mate! You did the right thing – you did what they told you to do – and, if you hadn’t done that thing, it would be you, who was now considered to be bad. Yes, you would be called bad by the people who count. Bad, by the people who have the power to order other good people to do those same bad things that you have done to other people, by their orders, to you.

Do they say that?

Or even think that?

Do the ‘good’ people, who do the bad things to the good, ever actually think about anything at all? Or do they just do?

I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
