The Platitudes On Good & Evil

It is not necessary that good will triumph over evil. In the political space, the desire for good is a luxury and a disability. It is not necessary that truth will make us free—truth can give rise to a new forms of scholasticism and slavery. It is not necessary that knowledge and good life go together—ignorant people often enjoy a higher quality of life than those with knowledge. It is not necessary that technology can cure the frailty of human nature—technology may fulfill our material wants but it can have a negative impact on our spiritual nature. It is not necessary that progress and peace move in tandem—the quest for progress can lead to wars and genocides. Man quests for stability and rationality but life without illusions and irrationality is impossible.
