Robert McNamara, having participated at the highest level of the United States government in the debacle of Vietnam, posed this question, “How much evil must we do to do good?”
The answer is, of course, ‘“Evil” begets “evil”, there is no good in “evil”’ or, in other words, ‘Negative creates negative and there is no positive in negative.’
As an analogy take the a pond in which the water is dirty. Can one clean the water by stirring it up and raising sediment from the bottom? However, let nature take its course and purification occurs naturally.
