** If I was Rowling I wold’ve included at least one “good” Slytherine working with the Trio, something like Dinobot in BeastWars (there’s a trope for that TokenHeroicOrc ) but on the other hand I would also made Hermione from another house as there is really no reason for her to be Gryffindorf as she does share dorms with Harry and Ron anyway and her be a Gryffindorf at nothing really to the plot. Her been from another house would have make at least one other house more relevant.

**Most Slytherins seem to be the exact opposite of what you are describing, they seem to be mostly spoiled kids from rich families. Anyway, I see nothing inherently “evil” in Slytherine’s ideology and behavior, they seem to be similar to many real life philosophies like Objectivism, Conservativism, Nietzscheanism, certain forms of Libertarianism in the political spectrum (y’know, law of the jungle, Might makes right, ambition as virtue, social Darwinism, the idea that some people born with inherited rights over other less fortunate people, etc) and to some such called Left-Hand-Path religious and esoteric philosophies like Laveyan Satanism, Setianism, Dragon Rouge, Thelema, etc. They’re not necessarily evil people, they just believe that the world is rightfully divided between strong and weak, have and have nots, and that the strongest have the right to rule and search for their own individual happiness and success over any other consideration and especially over any other person.

* So... any reason the Wizarding Community kept Slytherin House? I mean, it's been pointed out at least once that most of the villainous wizards came from that house, including Salazar and Voldemort, one of which was the GreaterScopeVillain and the other being his [[BigBad direct descendant]]. You'd think that after the house has been responsible for causing so much death and destruction and proceeded to unmask the Wizarding World to all of the UK, they'd take a meeting and go "Yeah... Can we sort of ''not'' have Slytherin in the school anymore? I mean, it's practically a villain factory."
** Cutting Slytherin won't stop its prejudiced environment from forming, it will just spread it. Many of the Slytherin kids in Harry's year are the children of very prominent officials and philanthropists, and so have significant power to demand the Slytherin House stay. Salazar wasn't even considered a bad guy until after the Chamber of Secrets turned out to be real; most thought of him as a talented but prejudiced wizard.

** Yeah, well, it's hard to have a huge turn out of not horrible people when your core characteristics are selfishness and racial-purity.

*** It's not as simple as that. Harry's faction is in the middle of a war they are very much losing. You can't take the risk of trying to save a Slytherin kid just because they're stuck in a bad situation. Ultimately that kid will do what's best for them and their family and if that means helping you fight off Voldemort, fine, but odds are it'll mean double crossing you to protect a parent or sibling. It isn't that no one cares. It's that there's too much on the line to risk it. Not to mention Harry's faction lost their biggest heavyweight the year before to (in their minds at least) someone who used a sap story to win their confidence. And I'd hope people from the "cunning and ambitious" House could appreciate the irony of the situation.
