“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke
So much of the history of the struggle between good and evil can be explained by this observation made more than 200 years ago. Time and again those who profess to be good seem to clearly outnumber those who are evil, yet those who are evil seem to prevail far too often. Seldom is it the numbers that determine the outcome, but whether those who claim to be good men are willing to stand up and fight for what they know to be right.
Yet it is easier to do nothing assuming others will take care of the problem. The daily challenge is to not allow evil to triumph. It is hard to do but important to not sit by and do nothing. Stand up and be counted, speak up against evil and speak out against evil men and their sinful deeds.
