Good men do nothing...

Postby Manners73 » Wed Nov 06, 2019 6:33 pm

I heard this quote many years ago and I can't remember how it actually goes but it's something like: where evil triumphs good men do nothing.

I'm neither good or am I a man and sometimes it really is hard to live with good people who just want to be liked rather than do the right thing.

Anyway fck it, I've got pots to wash.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Good people who do nothing aren't that good if you ask me, but they're certainly the norm.

I know. I kind of understand the sentiment behind the quote but at the same time it makes no sense.

What it is that you do, other than talk down on people.

:lol:

Well I guess, perhaps it is meant to highlight the contradiction that normal people can be evil too. idk

I think it means that 'good' should be a verb requiring action, not just an absence of bad.
