Everyone in the world has good intentions, including the likes of Adolf Hitler, the 9/11 terrorists, and every single serial killer.
Oops, did I just surprise you? The truth is a bit shocking; a close examination of every human reveals that they had mostly good intentions, just bad actions.
Hitler thought he was “purifying” Europe. The 9/11 terrorists wanted an amazing afterlife. Serial killers also live in strange fantasies in which death rituals are done to please some spirit or lord.
If these people, with whom we can all agree are not moral, were thinking they had great intentions, what makes you certain that you have great intentions?
At the end of the day, good intentions do not save lives, good intentions do not bring about change, and good intentions are just that: thoughts without action.
Let me give you an example: a family member recently got extremely sick, and now is having money problems. I would love to support them, but I can’t.
Do my good intentions pay for the food, house, and treatment?
The fact is that my lack of ability to help, although not evil or my fault, does not make up for having “good intentions.”
At the end of the day, actions get measured by the results they delivered. Nothing else.
Do your actions live up to your speech? What makes you so sure your good intentions are truly moral or right?
