    Your action definitely does not live up to the standard of perfect goodness. How good or evil it is is relative, but to the sincerity of your intentions, not your aesthetic whims.
    That perception is based on your personal morality, not mine. To me, that would be perfect goodness.

    Morality is an aspect of human existence rotating around conscience, which decides whether we are doing right by other people. When conscience is active, it considers whether we have respected other people's freedom and happiness to the best of our abilities. When it is inactive, we don't care about such things; only about aesthetic pursuits and personal pleasure. Unethical people have no ability to recognize other people have needs and desires as valid as their own.
    The application of one's conscience is also relative. Doing right by people is dependant on the combination of many factors. It is not possible to ultimately "do right" by people, because, in the process, one may "do wrong" by other people.

    We get our definitions for good and evil the same way we get them about gravity, except instead of physics we study the architecture of human nature.
    How each of us experiences gravity is fairly static. How each of us experiences good and evil is completely variable.

    Yes, that is the paradox. The founder of Shin Buddhism accepted this and believed all he could do was be true to himself and not deliberately harm another.
    George Monboit "Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite."

    I have been evil enough in the past that I could be in prison.

    I have been so good that I could have been elected neighbor of the year.
