what's the big deal?

Division proceeds selection.
Selection proceeds good and evil.
Good and evil are names and categories.
Anything can have any name.

It took a long time to realize what is good and bad.
Many civilizations have rose and fallen.
There is no shortage of fallacy.

It's like gambling, and the chips are our lives.

Well, morality has been a big business from the start. I'm not sure I can imagine what civilization would look like without good and evil.

Like it does in an expensive restaurant in Moscow. Or I think that gets you pretty close.
