It is bad to be a good person.
It is actually good to be a good person.
However, despite this, I do not want to be a bad person, I want to be a good person, and I hope the world around me is the same way.
If we believe otherwise, I fear society might collapse into the wild west or some law of the jungle.
This means that, regardless of what I prove in this article, I am going against this evidence and I hope people goes against it as well. Meaning I’m no trying to convert anyone into believing this, in fact, I want the opposite.

So why is good bad?
And why is it good to be bad?

Being good is not only bad but stupid.
Being good is senseless and being good is not something anyone truly enjoys.
The truth is the world is not a good place, and the truth is nobody is actually good.
The ones who seem good are not, it's pretending, what people care about has never truly been morality but social acceptance, a sense of image, looking good, not actually being good.

Any force of good, that people tolerate is “limited” and “regulated” by evil.
Otherwise, it is discarded or corruptive, meaning it leads to evil.




Kindness is good.
Freedom is good.
Being unselfish is good.
But none of those things are good really.
For example, what stops people from giving away everything they own to poor people around the world?
It would be unselfish, and it would be good, but it would also be stupid and against self-interests, along with common sense.
Truth is, nobody needs to do that either, it is not an obligation society puts on you, so a poor person cannot rely on “good”.
Because if they did, they would be spoiled and if people were forced to do good, it would be tyranny.

In fact, nobody can depend on good, the moment we assume good should rule the world, is the moment we turn bad.
And good does not rule the world.
For example, is the education system ruled with good? Are people graded based on how they behave?
In some circles they are, however, this cannot be proven to be just or good, can it?
Really a proper education system is based on knowledge you are able to prove that you have.
Success is therefore not based on how “good” you are as a person. It is not a metric on who is the fairest person in the world, meaning it is not fair and cannot be.

It would be kind to give students high grades for no reason, making them feel special and awesome.
But let's say you give out a driver's license to people out of kindness, you will cause traffic accidents.
That is not good.
So, kindness which is good leads to bad things.

Work is not guided by good either.
Work is pretty essential, both for society and yourself.
But you cannot get a job, simply by being nice.
No matter how much you “deserve” a chance to serve, it’s irrelevant how good of a person you are, people want talent and experience.
Money is not a metric of how good people are either.
Life is great for people who have jobs and people who have money.
But this luxury never comes just because you deserve it.

Making life unfair.
And that is how it needs to be.
Otherwise, nothing would work out, everything would collapse.

Then we have social relations, are they based on good? Are people themselves good?
No, the reason is regulation.
Freedom is good, however, if people are allowed to do whatever they want, nothing is good either.
We think we have freedom, but do we?
Not 100 percent.
You are expected to behave a certain way in life.
There are regulations everywhere, on you, if not, we start to enable bad behavior.

If you start by being good, you are naïve and will most likely be taken advantage of and destroyed, if you instead start by being bad you learn how much you can get away with, and with intelligence you build a better life.

We see this all the time in today’s world.

Socialism is something people adopt for the sake of good but it’s going away more and more now.
Liberalism seems like the perfect antidote to intolerance and suffering yet, people complain about forced wokeness and agendas more and more now.

Being good is slowly disappearing, and it turns out it’s very easy to justify this process.
Life itself doesn’t function with “good”.
Whenever people are good, it comes with a context and a caveat.
True “good” does not exist.

Religion is supposed to be all about good but doesn’t always live up to that.

Being a good person is being a hypocrite.
In order for us to function, we need to compromise our beliefs in good with the world we live in.
This means sacrificing the ideals we believe to be spokespeople of, yet we still hold on to them for some reason, thus being hypocrites.
