Good

Leave a comment

If goodness is subjective, then goodness is dependent on the person.
There could be no goodness without people.
Saving humanity from destruction is saving goodness from destruction.

There CAN be objective truth without objective goodness, though.
But that doesn’t make objective truth objectively good.
The truth is often unpleasant, and one’s concept of goodness may hinge on what is pleasant.

However, learning the truth is the best strategy for saving humanity from destruction.
Any argument to the contrary would have to be both LEARNED and TRUE in order to be valid.

If your concept of good does not include maintaining the conditions for maintaining goodness, then your goodness is not sustainable and should rightfully die off.

I believe this is the closest one can rationally come to objective good:
To love the world. To give and receive the truth. To save the world. To protect the people.

If DC heroes sung: “We Are The World”…

when the radio isn’t on you can hear the songs
a guided light on the dark road your walking on
a sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone
someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on
someone to help you rebuild after the rubble’s gone
we are the World connected by a common bond
Love the whole planet sing it along.

[Never The End…]____________________________________________________

(The situation in Japan is just so damn horrible.
With all the disasters likewise befalling the DCU, I wondered how THEY would pull together a cover of this song, (and likewise whether or not this history altering event will be canonized in that universe. Probably… I was actually thinking of this BEFORE that happened. So I figured now’s the best time to unveil this silly little idea in my head.)
