Good people

“People are too big to be good” -Nick
Actions can be good, but not people or companies. But I do think it is possible to apply a utilitarian principle here - people can be mostly good if they do more good actions than bad actions. Or actions that result in more good than bad. But because it is so tricky to distinguish good outcomes from bad outcomes, espcially long term ones, the good must vastly outweigh the bad for an action conglomerate (human or corporation) to be called good.
