So... Are you devoted or not?

Do you attempt in genuine to repay those who have sacrificed for you? Do you think in doing this that the good deeds will come back to repay you, all that karma and crap included? This is inevitably selfish but then again isn't everything when you think about it? Is the only difference between the good and the bad is that the bad justify their acts by thinking only immediately, a type of immediate gratification? Do the good postpone gratification or complicate it by acts of selflessness that inevitably directs similar acts back to them? There is no guarantee of results, there is wit and luck involved as always... Which side do you see prevailing? Which side do you, have you rolled the bones toward? Do you complicate good and bad (easily done) until some other lucidity becomes apparent?

I believe that mankind is inherently good. I believe that we hear too much about people doing bad things and not enough about the good. I believe we are designed to do good and assist others in times of need. I feel that people collectively have good intentions and sometimes screw up. (which is why Obama won)

Then what is the origin of 'bad'?

Don't you know someone who has given more than they have received.
