In our world today, people think that they know what is “good” and what is bad”. We often label criminals, terrorists, and bullies as “bad” people. I once heard a person say “the world would be better off without all the “bad” people in the world”. As a society, we tend to blame the “bad” people in the world for all of our problems but could we be wrong? As I have observed events in history and in my personal life, I have found that these “bad” people actually create a lot of good in the world. Often the “bad” people in our life are the catalysts for personal growth, and a balanced society. I have come to conclude that we should be grateful for the “bad” people in our society because, in their own way, they contribute to making the world a better place!

    People often considered ‘bad’ by the society are actually helping the society in some way or other. Someone gave me a pretty good example- a homeless guy who happens to be a drug addict is considered to be not contributing anything to the society. But he is doing it in his own way. Other people can learn a lesson from him so that they too do not get addicted to drugs. As the author rightly puts our society needs so called ‘bad’ people for personal growth.



    I totally agree with this article. Yes, there is nothing Good or bad, right or wrong in any and everything around you. It is the perception of an individual that makes him analyse things. Human and animal brains are structured in a modular way, with different areas processing different kinds of sensory information. This sensory information enables individuals to see the world in different ways.
