Are you a bad person? Why aren’t you bad exactly now?

This is my answer to this Quora Question.

I ask myself what does it take to be a bad person? Greed, selfishness, apathy? because it would appear many Government Leaders have those attributes.

 

I could not kill innocent men women and children. They do by war and economic mismanagement.

I am not a bad person because if I was a Prime Minister my Government would not allow innocent men women and children to die in Yemen by supplying arms to cause them to die in that way.

I would not let my AirForce bomb innocent civilians in Afghanistan. Over 1.5 million civilians and soldiers have died in conflict in Afghanistan since 1979.

My Government tells the children of the U.K to be good and moral. Yet it supplies arms that kill children.

I am not bad exactly now because I unlike my Government have a Principle. One that does not aid in the killing of children.
