I want to say this is like arguing with children, but I have had this very conversation with children. They didn't have any problem understanding the point.

Being "good" is harder than being "bad". Bad people will try to destroy even the very concept of "good"ness, because it is a threat to their way of doing things, and by extension, that makes it a threat to themselves. They will do that by ridicule, by deception, by trivialization, by coercion, by force, and by whatever other means they have available. They will do it in war time. In peace time. In real life. In a game. About the future. About the past. Under any circumstance.

It takes courage or curiosity or something to make us look at ourselves in the mirror and see ourselves for the monster we are. Some of us have never done it before. Some of us will NEVER do it. We will just continue parading around in our gorilla suits or our prison guard uniform or our spaceship outfit, excusing ourself for our inability to do better, because, after all, there is no "better" in a game.
