Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

Evil will always succeed because people think this way.

Evil will often succeed because people don’t realize the true nature of evil, being not some vague monster under the bed or biblical creature, but far worse. Rather, it is the mere ability of any and all human beings to delude themselves into thinking that their actions are undeniably moral in some scope, and that the ends unquestionably justify the means.

True evil is so insideous because any one of us can succumb to it out of our desire to improve ourselves or the world around us.
