Wickedness

“To see and listen to the wicked is already the beginning of wickedness.” Confucius

This is our problem. There is wickedness all around. With things like TV and yes even Internet we are so much more exposed to everything, including wickedness, that we do get influenced. I mean when you think that some people do what they can to get an ASBO as though it were a badge of honour, then no wonder that the world and our society is deteriorating the way it is.

Wickedness has a way of spreading. Think of it as the single bad apple in a bowl of apples. Before you know it, they are all bad, although it was only one bad apple and a bowl full of good apples. The good apples never change the bad one to good!!

People – good or bad?

“It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.” Oscar Wilde

Fair enough. I fall into the latter category as you may have obviously realised. Mind you, so do most people. Thinking about it, so do the people who try to be charming fall into the tedious category. Are there any truly charming people? Are all people simply tedious? Hmmm….
