Good versus Evil is a long time discussion. It has been a debate even before saga. Do we really have these forces unknown? Many of us believe that the good triumphs over evil. I would say, it is always right to do something good. It is through this that we could open a door for good to win over evil.

There is good and evil in every person. I hate it, when books show main characters as an absolute good as it is just very plain. Every person is a little bit greedy, jealous, manipulative, merciless and such. Maybe it's weird, but I relate a lot with villains, most of them have a strong purpose and I can put myself in their shoes, so I see a lot good in them too. But of course, it is weird if they don't have any human emotion or a capacity to feel.

I don´t believe in unseen forces that manipulate us but I think we naturally, as humans, root for good over evil. What we define as good or evil is ultimately decided by society.
We are influenced from an early age about what is defined as good and evil and we don´t question. Take the Disney films, the villain is always stereotypical so it´s clear from the beginning that they are evil, no moral confusion there. However, take the book Lolita and, although we know very clearly that his actions are wrong, we can´t help feeling slightly sorry for the paedophile. Shocking, but just goes to show how easily our definitions of good and evil can be swayed.

There has always been Good vs. Evil in the world. God vs. Satan. I mean, it's the foundation that everyone could understand. Everyone has an angel or a devil working in their lives, but depends on who listen to. I know that sounds like an old cartoon but its something that everyone can relate to.

Good and evil will always be the boiling point in real life and in fiction. No character goes without this shadow following them. Ones past can haunt them forever which then can destroy their present and possibly their future. Always go for the good. Because once, one goes to the evil side there is never way past haunts me each day. If I could go back I would try to redo each better.

I usually find myself rooting for villainous characters when the protagonists are obnoxious and shallow. Some times you're better able to relate with them because most bad people didn't just get that way all on their own. I however, condemn anime for the way it presents these terrible characters as cool. Has anyone else notice how really good looking actors get cased in villainous roles and fans gravitate to them more? Evil is only appealing in fiction because it creates conflicts upon which to drive the story. I'm a sucker for a good ending.
