Common Western-social systems have upheld the notion of "goodness" as a trait that defines the nature and impression of a human being. Even today you will find that virtually all cultures and societies have some idea of what "good" means, even if this idea is drastically different from another.
Even disregarding religion, atheists will often have areas where there's perceived "good" and "bad." In short, all cultures define such sides for some sense of social utility and functioning. Even if you disregard any religious or non-religious viewpoints, including all inbetween, people still see fluctuations, variations, and degrees to which actions and outcomes are "good" or "bad" in some way.
People, however, often form conjectures and ideals that ground people to certain qualities -- and they generally will do so with extremes. The idea here is that people like to choose who is "bad" and who is "good," and/or weigh each trait against the other and make their own choices.
Given that nobody knew whether an individual was good or bad, and the individual seems good, is that all that would be required for a person to be good, despite all else?
Is someone only "good" or "bad" if others measure them as such? I know murderers, serial killers, and some others have probably seen themselves as good people that just did what they felt they needed to; likewise, selfless, caring, helpful and nice people can feel like they are disgusting and "evil."
If how you feel tells you what you are to yourself, but other's viewpoints can shape the impression of you, what really matters: whether you decide you're good or bad, or whether others decide it? Why?
If we want to take this all the way back to Philosophical drawing board, I could postulate that "good" and "bad" simply do not exist anymore than the subjectivity that defines "right" or "wrong" far and wide.
If other people decide it, and it's subjective, being "good" or "bad" is hardly something you can prove or sense with solid reasoning -- more so it seems to be an opinion of someone at best.
Some people talk about "bad motives," but isn't such a thing nothing more than an action? We all take actions -- some different than others. There can't be any "bad motive" because such a thing would not exist any more than an unspoken thought; unheard sound; unbelieved notion; or even existence.
Can you understand me?
