"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)
What do you think of this quote? How do we know when to fight and when to just let it go? How easy is evil to pinpoint?

It's different for everybody and everybody has their own 'beginning of evil".
Therefore, there are no absolutes except the one everyone sets for themselves.
It's all relative.
There are billions of people on the planet, but that is just a triviality.
We can get it figured out!
I mean, as a human, who are you to tell me what's evil, or even just a little bit bad? And vise versa.

I agree 100%. You know when to fight when there is an immoral or cruel act going on. If a good person walked away from a rape because it's none of their business, are they really a good person? Can they sleep at night knowing they walked away and could have prevented the act? Evil is not easy to pinpoint if we're not paying attention.
