** Evil and Good are forced to coexist, which means they're in almost constant conflict. After thousands of years of this, the land the work takes place in is a miserable, ruined, wasteland, with disgusted and weary heroes battling it out with equally disgusted and weary villains. Neither can wipe the other out, no one can actually accomplish anything constructive, and everyone's pretty unhappy.
*** The above would lead to the [[EvilVersusOblivion forces of Oblivion]] gaining clout when it comes to [[PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery ending the pain of conflict]] by aiming towards [[OmnicidalNeutral destroying both sides]] by all means necessary.

** Maybe Balance is the best one can hope for, but we only have a chance of even reaching that balance if Good aims beyond.

** Because the [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed world is constantly being in danger by Evil]], and the fact that Good isn't proactive about stopping said evil, all the people who are thoroughly (and unanimously) fed-up with the [[ForeverWar neverending war of Good and Evil]] began enlisting the help of neutral-aligned wizards to conjure dimensional gateways to realms free of such endless conflict. There, the people started their new lives truly free of such worry.

** Evil Black Sorcerer: "If we can induce in some of our opponents the notion of the Balance between Good and Evil, they may hesitate to fight our evil."



* '''Discussed''': ???

to:

** Evil rarely respects the balance between Good and Evil.
* '''Discussed''': ???"One should realize that the notion that Good and Evil must be kept in balance is nonsense incarnate, or Orwellian {{doublethink}}. When we say that it's good that Good and Evil be in balance and bad (or evil) that Good and Evil be out of balance, we clearly aren't balancing this particular good and evil."


Added DiffLines:

** Good people recognize that the Balance is the best we can hope for, but if we try for more, we get a better chance of reaching the balance, or at least minimizing the degree of imbalance in Evil's favor.
