Evil - learning to use it for the good

On earth good needs evil. Yes, in order to manifest, good needs evil; otherwise, it goes to sleep, because there is no longer anything there to stimulate it. Evil excites good, stimulates good, and then good acts. It is thanks to evil that good is good. If ugliness did not exist, we would not know how beautiful beauty is, and, in the same way, if there were no evil, we would not know what good is. You want to annihilate evil? Fine, but the good will also be annihilated, because evil is like the roots of good; if you tear up the roots of a tree, it dies. Of course, that does not mean that we must nurture and strengthen evil. No, it is strong enough as it is; it does not need our help. But we must not try to eradicate it either, and in any case it can’t be done. But we need to know what attitude to adopt towards it so we can use it for the good.
