Quote: Edmund Burke

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Edmund Burke

There are many variations of this quote, but I chose this one because it is concise. It is often said that those who remain neutral in Times when evil is succeeding are just as at fault for the success of evil as those who are perpetrating it. To stand idly by as evil spreads- when one can act to prevent or mitigate it- is to be culpable in part for the effects of the evil being done.

Ethical behavior is just that: behavior. Therefore, it is necessary for one’s actions, or inactions, to be judged in order to decide whether one’s behavior is ethical or not.

What do you think? Does complacency in the face of evil make one culpable for the perpetrators actions as well? Does it make one and accomplice? Comment below with your thoughts and let’s get the dialogue going!
