All these meanings of ‘being good’ involve obeying moral rules. In another sense, to be good means to be of benefit to someone or something. By being of benefit to other people and to our environment we can create an environment in which everyone flourishes, including ourselves. Whether we succeed depends on our skill in choosing actions that have good consequences. We need good people in the world because good people get good karma and we need to be good to each other in order to survive and reproduce.

The definition of karma? For every action there will always be a reaction. Your actions create a ripple in the universe. Your thoughts and actions are powerful. They carry energy. They are like an echo. We have all taken a different path in life but somehow we are all linked. Good karma comes back when you least expect it, but it benefits you when it does come back. Being a good person in the world will reflect on others and think of it as a way that you have to be.

Secondly, we need good people in the world in order to survive and reproduce. Although this sounds unreasonable, without being good to each other there would be fights and arguments which leads to ignoring each other. With that said, we wouldn’t reproduce as well as surviving since we depend on each other.

On the other hand, many people think and believe that what’s the point of being good if some people aren’t good and get away with it. Also people think that why we should be good if we’re going to die but the truth is you should act rightly because that’s the right way to act. And, similarly, you should be good because it is good to be good. This shows that concepts such as ‘goodness’ and ‘rightness’ cannot readily be analyzed into more basic constituents.

In conclusion, I think the world should have good people I order for us to survive ad reproduce and also because the consequences of doing well are more favorable than those of not being good. This can be seen no matter how we interpret the meaning of ‘being good’. As well as the cause and effect of karma. For these reasons and my opinion I think this is why we need good people in the world.
