i'd start with the fact that this site needs a smily with a weapon

who needs sanity? its what keeps morals going around and if we have no morals then no evil cuz people usualy perform various crimes due to pressure from others and everyone can be insane and happy and retarded :D

HAHA! Yes, Someone has stepped into my little cave of skewed thought and now I can throw my little cord of philosophical thought around their neck and strangle them with my twisted logic! Haha! Philosophically speaking…
You said that without morels then there would be no evil. But by that logic there would be no good, correct. For if there is no evil then what could good be compared to too make it good? Without evil good has no place in this world. So thank god that there is evil in the world. It allows us to understand and appreciate the good that is also there, however miniscule and small that it may be it allows us to see it. Back to the previous thought If there were no good and no evil then there would be no logical need for morals as any human reaction thought or idea would be considered neither good nor bad yet simply existing. SO that would make your whole point moot. For without evil morals would have no existence as a preventative of evil. And sanity is simply a buffer against the far more dangerous aspects of human nature. If we allow our sanity to slip then we also allow our deeper, more primal natures to come to the surface. It is far, FAR better to allow those thoughts and idea to be overshadowed by a hint of sanity, a gate holding back the waves of fear, anger, hatred, everything that made man man, then to allow it to leak through the craks in the surface and pervade the outside world with it’s.. horror. Insanity is the key to the pandora’s box. It allows you to slip off your little bubble of peace and fall into that deep black ocean. So, I say that thank you very much but I would prefer to keep whatever shard of sanity that I have left. And the evil in the world…how ever bad, how ever wrong. Has it’s place… Thank you…thank you very much…ahhh, it has been a while since I let my inner mung out:D
Btw, pressure from others isn’t really a reason that anyone except the weakest of souls can claim. For we all have a choice…you have to have the inclination before you’re ever going to allow yourself to go along with anything…so it’s still their fault:D

EDIT: two things...this is a really long post and...I MADE IT TO ADEPT!!! WHO YEAH!!!

true, but that brings us to the question:
do we really need good in this world?

it takes time to become good or evil and then it gets all confusing and stuff.
anyway if we had no good or evil we would have time for other things, like science, art and love! people love nothing that doesnt fall under one of these categories. i dare u to name something that doesnt fall under one of these!!!

Do we really need good...and do we really need evil? I don't know if that question can ever be answered...even if we don't need them, or want them-We Have To Deal With Them. I would love to be devoid or such restrictions and thoughts. I would love to live a life with no ups and downs. But that’s not going to happen.
Good…the things that make you feel…right. I don’t know how to explain it. Like, when you see a kitten on the side of the road, you drive on, and your stomach turns and you find yourself looking back in the mirror. So you turn around and pick up the little Kit. You take it home and make it comfortable, give it food, milk. You make it feel at home, loved. That’s good.
Evil…is when you look at that cat and you realize that you can’t keep it. So you pick it up, feel it’s feather weight in your hand, you cradle it in your arms for a moment, then drop it into a blanket. Wrapped comfortably you put it in the passenger seat of your car and take it to some side road, far away. You set the little bundle on the ground and scratch it on above the ears one last time. The cat pushes against your hand, it’s eyes closed, and tries to lick your fingers when you pull your hand away. You sit back in your seat and start the engine. Above the growl of the car you hear a high yip. A soft little noise as the kitten fights to free it’s self from the blanket. You look into its eyes and you can tell…you can feel that he knows what’s happening. Before he can shake the last bit of clothe from its little paw you gun the engine and pull away. That is the evil in the world. Situations like this that tear you apart inside.
Evil can be as large as a corrupt ruler or as small as a lost kitten, abandoned. Good can be as great as saving the world or taking in that little cat.
Now, I realize that this post is a little depressing. So, my little sis told me a joke. Answerer each of these questions to yourself.
1. What is your name…
2. What color is the sky…
3. What is the opposite of down…
Yah…that was it…interesting joke though :D but like I was saying. Without good in the world we would be heartless basterds. Good is what allows emotions like love and hate to be possible. It’s one of the colors in the multi-faceted spectrum of life. Without it would be like…having a world without shadows. Bare and strangely…wrong. Things such as good and bad, to me at least, aren’t simply decisions. It’s the way things feel. The right or wrong of a situation if you take my meaning. Am I making any sort of logic?

There's more to that system than one might think. Remember what an improvement the political compass is over the traditional Left/Right scale.

So good and evil go in different directions? So to say, evil goes south-east and good goes north-west?
If not, forgive my logic. Its early in the morning and I'm at school.

ok pencildragon, that bring us to the begining. i know e cant get rid of good and evil and we have to deal with them. BUT! that is only because sanity exists and without it the world would be a much happier place. BUT AGAIN! we cannot get rid of sanity and all that i was saying about it was just proven true. as you can see this topic shows us our true selves, we left our sanity in the real world and entered this little world of our own where we now dwell without morals, openly stating ourselves.

the end
