Here's an idea.

Bad people get shit done. (Think game of thrones or corrupt people in power) They are successful, because they are selfish. They take every opportunity, because they are selfish. Good people, by nature, cannot and will not take EVERY opportunity, because they have moral obligations and codes. Opportunities can be bad things that equate to profit in some way. But good people let these opportunities slip, and that is why they are unsuccessful. Bad things happen to good people, because they do not take care of themselves to their upmost potential. Selflessness may lead to longterm happiness or whatever, but there will always be potential for bad things to happen to said good person.

This subject is not all black and white, but my idea has a solid base for the why factor.

Discuss.

Edit: I do not completely believe in this idea. It's just a standard to get this discussion started. I do realize that all people have problems and that bad things happen to all people, but discuss WHAT makes it so that good people face more "bad luck"

First define good.
Then define bad.
What constitutes a good person vs a bad person?
If somebody I deem as a bad person gets hit by a train can I consider that as a good thing that happened to him?
Bad things and good things happen to everybody. It's called life. What you are outlining is your perception of it.

Huh, it's not? Imagine that.


Look, your theory doesn't work. Bad shit happens to everyone -- regardless of how "good" or "bad" they are. It's part of being human. The world ain't perfect, and everyone suffers tragedy or misfortune at some point in their life. The only thing to do about it is to decide whether you're going to grow through the bad things.
#15
The good are naive. Life is harsh, hurtful and representative to the winner mentality. The good keep optimism in the highest regard, clouding rational understanding of reality. Pure good can never win. We have all done something dark enough to question our moral compass and understanding of the world. The darker the mindset, the more empathy and apathy is gathered. True evil can never win as well, to be beyond the bounds of righteousness and the depraved leads to maximum failure. Hence toppled dictatorships, and criminal incarceration.

There is a means to a balance, a balance that can either suit light and dark. To flow through the natural primal need to survive, thrive and prosper. How these means are pursued, is entirely up to the human in question.

Your idea is terrible.

Bad things happen to good people because bad things happen to everybody, as the world is a meaningless and at times cruel place.

Honestly, is this a serious question?

EDIT: Alternatively, if you must find comfort in searching for the meaning in things and events, read the Book of Job, which is the best metaphysical/metapersonal treatise on reasoning with suffering that I've ever read and has probably yet been written.

its a topic you can make what you want it to be, not a straightforward question. And that theory. It's not necessarily what I believe in or hold true. It's just a basic concept to get this discussion started.

Agreed with this. I'm not a huge fan of Christians constantly citing Job, because so many of them read it so narrow minded. It's such an interesting book, and definitely one of my favourites of the Old Testament.

I understand, it definitely isn't an easy thing to deal with, and it's an unfortunate part of the human experience. Really bad stuff happens all the time for absolutely no reason, often at the hands of really shitty people.

I believe it was already explained to you how everyone has their own perception of good and bad, and therefore, there is no such thing as bad things happening to good people. Just bad things happening to people.

Another example: Most people hate Hitler, but of course he had a lot of followers who would consider him good. Hitler dies, they consider it bad.

Get it? So to even consider that MORE good people have bad luck is absolutely retarded. No offense.

Exactly. lol


No one wants to believe that what they do is wrong, even if they do run roughshod over other human beings. *cough*Looking at you, Trump!*cough*


Everyone does shitty things at some point in their life. Is everyone therefore bad? Kind of, but not really. Everyone also can point to at least one example of something good they have done (or at least, one example that they see as "good"). Is everyone therefore good? Kind of, but not really. My point is, you can't say that more bad things to happen to good people, because no one is "good" 100% of the time. Conversely, you can't say that more good things happen to bad people, because no one is "bad" 100% of the time.

Life is full of bad experiences and great experiences. Some people end up flipping one side of the coin more than the other, but everyone ends up on the bad side eventually. It's your choice whether you man up and deal with it, or let yourself be swept up in the tide. Most people who do the former become better people for it.


But really I dont know what the **** I'm talking about so don't mind me.

Bad things happen to good people because that is what happens in life. The quicker you accept this, the happier you will be. If something bad happens, examine if something you did caused it to happen. If so, learn from that bad experience and don't do the thing that caused the bad thing to happen. If the bad thing happened through no fault of your own, accept that you cannot do anything to fix it and move on.

Life is about how you react to experiences both positive and negative. If you accept that bad things might happen to you for no reason and don't dwell on it, you can and will be fine. If you always say "why meeeeee" when something bad happens to you, you will have greater difficulty being fine. Accept the bad things, avoid them if possible, learn to control what you can control. If you can't control it, then c'est la vie.

Vonnegut sums this up pretty well: "So it goes."

^^Except for over 30 coin tosses the results will approximate the normal curve and have the best chance of a 50/50 result between good or bad

Well you have to ask yourself, do bad things REALLY happen more often to good people, or is it just more noticeable when it does?

Until we have that answer, which is likely never, you can't really say that bad things happen more often to good people. It just seems that way.

also the coin toss in no country for old men is symbolic. if anton represents the reaper, you see his coin toss shows that you cannot escape death except by a matter of luck.

When the amount of coin tosses approaches infinite then the results of the coin tosses approaches 50:50. I was taught in intro to stats that when the number of coin tosses is above 30 then it's safe to assume
