Why goodness and badness always lives in one thing or one person?

One thing can be good or bad simultaneously.
One person can be good or bad simultaneously.

@Setanta,

@lovespring,
I really rather doubt that people make conscious choices about these matters. Some days, people are compasionate and caring. Other days, they've got a headache, or a disappointment, and don't care how you feel. Life is like that--people respond to things about which they don't give any thought.

there once was girl
who had a little curl
right in the middle of her forehead
and when she was good
she was very, very good
but when she was bad
she was better

That's one part of it, yes, but then there is the difference between a good watch dog and a vicious beast.

@wayne,
The question would be whether or not it were a difference of intent.

@Setanta,
Probably so. People don't often intend to be bad, they intend to survive and prosper. Good or bad lies in which side of the fence you're on.

@wayne,
Those are certainly subjective terms. It is to me foolish to suggest that people are consistently motivated by conscious choice.

@Setanta,
The basis for motivation is most likely instinctive. We do have a tendency toward carrying those instincts to the extreme.
Doesn't it seem as though restraint requires concious choice?

@wayne,
Yeah, perhaps it does. But the geneticists are now telling us that community and compassion are evolutionary products--so, who knows?

@Setanta,
Yeah, I can see how that can be said too.
Question, is there any difference between the positive and negative poles of a magnet other than alignment?
