Can Goodness Prevail?

Damn it, stand up for something! At least make it known to all who will listen what you stand for. For if it was truly something worth fighting for - your wife, your children, your family, justice, liberty....PEACE - would it not be beneficial to make it known before you have to fight to protect it? And if it is goodness you seek, is it not possible to make allies with every human being on this earth? By God Almighty, if you tell me this is impossible I would say, "then there is no Good in man!" But I refuse to believe it because there are some things that are universally known; such as the expression of thought and the ability to understand. Both these things are possible. Are they products of evolution or abilities bestowed upon us by our creator? It does not matter, take your pick. What does matter is making use of these gifts and making known what you stand for so that you're understood. And if what you stand for truly is Good, then no barrier should exist to prevent it from becoming universally accepted in a free and open society. Call me a dreamer, but I believe one day the good in man will finally see victory.

I don't know

looking at history it doesn't look so good. There will be some brave souls but most will do what they are told "Following Orders".

Yes

Goodness can prevail. The future is not set. Nothing is eched in stoned. Everyday goodness can prevail. It can, and it is up to us. It is the way we treat each other, for we ARE society. All big things are made of little things. Everyday, if we move in this way, goodness will prevail.

Maybe confusing stream of scripture references but...

It has been said that "hell enlarges itself" to accept all the incoming (Isaiah 5:14).

Because: strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

So to sum up what I surmise: in the end, goodness will win but it will be a quality over quantity win. Not a numbers game.

Matthew says (in "the apocalypse chapter", 24:12): And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Today = Iniquity abounds and love is waxed cold.

Freedom is not: doing everything you want to.
Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.
~ Joyce Meyer

Is never going to happen.

Is never going to happen. You say the expression of thought and the ability to understand; these both require thinking and the vast majority have no desire to do that(think). There can be no expression of thought if there is no thought originally, and there can be no understanding without thinking and questioning.

People don't question therefore they do not think; they just accept. Since they do not think, they cannot express that which they do not do. How can one understand without exploring why something is or how it works? If one does not understand then how can they teach someone else? People may be able to accomplish a myraid of tasks, but don't think even the most technical of these tasks requires that much understanding; for our education system creates Biological Computers/Robots.

Also, there seems to be a correlation between intelligence and the number of children, such that the less intelligent have more children. Therefore, the more people dependent on government will out-breed those who desire liberty.

There is no way goodness can prevail under those circumstances. I wish it weren't so; unfortunately it is.
