    A good person

    What do you think a good person is?

    Do you think someone who is a drug addict can be a good person? I'm not an addict but I definitely enjoy not being sober and consider myself a good person.

    If someone harm another being just for pure fun does that automatically make them bad?

    A "good person" would be someone who has followed your morals and views.

    Re: A good person

    A good person imo is someone who adds substance to the world more than they take from it. Harming someone for pure fun is obviously evil. Hitler is one of those debatable people. He was absolutly crazy and had good in his heart but he went the wrong way about "saving" the world so he is a bad person. Lil things like drinking doesnt make you bad but it can increase the chances of you being a bad person (domestic violence as an example)

    A good person would be someone willing to help another without expecting compensation.

    Dafuq is with you people and Hitler. He was not a good person. He knew exactly what he was doing. He had no good in his heart.

    Re: A good person

    I've read so many great responses! So much compassionate understanding on Narutobase!!! 333

    I have learned that I cannot define myself, anyone else or anything at all in definite terms. Everything is different than a symbolic projection that we humans give unto it, and nothing is actually understandable. When we are able to see people without wrong views or conceptions about them, than we are truly able to see them as they are. Seeing people in this way, everyone is "good" because we can then be compassionate and deeply understand them.

    I kind of get where you are coming from like you can't truly and accurately judge someone without going thru what they have been thru but I respectful disagree because like others have posted Hitler was evil. Anyone that would kill innocent people especially babies are the true definition of evil

    True true!
    We can define evil, just like we can define "good". Can we see Hitler and retain our biases about evil (i.e. it is wrong to kill children) yet also simultaneously SEE Hitler (experience Hitler the world without preconceptions?)
