“There is no thin without good?” composition

Yes, there is such a saying, “There is no evil without good,” which seems very wise and deep to many, although in reality it is simply lying. We will clarify, lie in the sense in which it is understood and repeated. In reality, situations where evil (that is, evil) without good, are encountered much more often than situations when evil (evil) with good.

Just wondering who came up with this proverb? A frivolous optimist? The soulless cynic? An active minister and propagandist of evil? Or just a man who once was lucky, and he decided that now it will continue to be so? In any case, this is not invented by a wise man, because the sage correctly understands what is good and evil, and what are the relationships between them.

Are there situations when evil (evil) is accompanied by good or leads to good? Of course, there are. True, in most cases it turns out that we are not talking about real good and evil, but only about people’s ideas about good and evil.


man was fired from his job, and he found himself a new, more interesting and better-paid one. The guy was thrown by the girl with whom he was walking, and he met real love, got married and happily lived with his wife all his life. The man was forced to work on Sunday, and he found a wallet with money on his way to work. The man on the street slipped, fell, he was taken to the hospital, and there he was found purulent appendicitis, made an emergency operation and saved his life. And there are many such examples. They have heard about and know, probably everything.

But does it follow from this that there is never thin without good, as the proverb says? Not at all. It simply follows that in some cases, in some people, bad luck turns into profit or is accompanied by good. That’s all! And to draw any conclusions of a global scale from this is simply absurd, absolutely illogical. By the way, thousands of other people in similar situations do not benefit. They do not find a better job, a beloved girl or a purse, they do not do the necessary operation, etc. But everyone keeps silent about this, as this is

the usual norm.

The woman planted potatoes in the vegetable garden, is preparing to harvest. Suddenly, locusts flew in and devoured everything. Of course, you can find good: a woman will not have to harvest, save it, prepare food. But there is nothing else for her, except for potatoes she does not have anything, and she ends her life by suicide. So what does our proverb say? The real case, by the way.

Another example. In a family, a young child is seriously ill and dies. Where is the good? Maybe it is that the child now does not need to be fed, dressed, brought up? Will disconsolate parents happily repeat the proverbial we are talking about or curse its author?

The following example. The man was beaten and maimed by hooligans. And he is doomed to spend his whole life in a wheelchair. What good is that? That he does not need to work, you can live on a scanty pension? What should someone constantly look after him for? That he needs less clothes and shoes? Or is it that the evil did not kill him finally, graciously saved his life? Comfort, to put it mildly, is weak.

And such examples can be given incomparably more than the rare luck, about which everyone is talking. Wars, epidemics, natural disasters, diseases and losses of loved ones, fires, terrorism, death of nature, Chernobyl, Fukushima and much more. Remembering and repeating the proverbial in such cases is cynical, mean, stupid, and simply dangerous – can beat badly.

That’s the way things are in reality, and not in a fantasy world described by the proverb. Evil is evil. There is nothing good in it and can not be. There are occasional coincidences, and then good comes after evil. And sometimes people, fighting against the evil that has come, do good to themselves and others. But to the evil itself this has no direct relationship. The good that has come after evil is not a consequence of evil, is not generated by evil, does not accompany evil, does not represent the opposite side of evil.

Once again, the proverb: “There is no evil without good” is utterly deceitful. If, of course, we understand it correctly.

But it can turn out to be very wise, deep and absolutely indisputable, if we see in it a completely different meaning unusual for us.

Yes, evil (evil) really does not happen without good. After all, good is harmony created by the Creator of the world and all its parts, and evil is the destruction of this harmony. And if there is no harmony (good), then there is no destruction (evil). Evil is a disease, a parasite on the body of the world. And how can there be a disease or parasite without an object of destruction? For example, if a person dies, then all his illnesses and parasites die with him, since they simply have nothing to eat.

So it is entirely possible that this proverb was invented by no fool, not a cynic and not a scoundrel, but a real sage. It’s just that we, in its simplicity, attributed to her quite the wrong meaning.

Finally, there is also the third possible profound meaning of the proverb, which is also accessible only to the wise. If evil (evil) is insignificant, small, reversible, correctable, then he should rejoice. Why? But because it reduces the power of evil over man, family, society, country, the world as a whole. That is, if you have given your evil behavior to the evil to interfere in your life, do yourself all sorts of nastiness, it is better that these misfortunes are small, not too strong. Sins of your own with this work out, but a lot of damage from this do not get, you manage to cope with the misfortunes without much loss. In other words,

For bad luck in small things, be grateful to fate.
It’s better to dust on boots than a brick on the head.

Although, of course, to call it all good is not entirely correct. It’s probably just the smallest possible evil.
