    Explain yourself, Lucy. You are positive everything you do is the right thing. But that means THINK you’ve done the right thing, when most of the time you do nothing but damage.

    I think I’m going to get a framed print of THIS comic!

    She could be talking about religious wars, although those were less common in the 70’s. Back then it was communism vs. capitalism or dictatorship vs. democracy.

    Closely followed by “I was just following orders.”

    For once, Lucy has nailed it in one.

    Lucy is not being very helpful, but this is still the wisest thing she ever said. And one of my all-time favorite Peanuts quotes.

    “For the greater good” comes to mind, but EGO is tops.

    Hope you never get seriously sick Lucy, because you’ll have to see a doctor who “will be trying to do the right thing” … (or, you could just stay home and die)

    I bet even Hitler thought that he “was doing the right thing”. People can rationalize anything. “Rationalize” = “rational lies”.

    That’ll do, Lucy.

    The right thing would be not to talk to Lucy anymore.

    I turns out this is one of the finest pieces of wisdom in all Peanuts. I googled it and found:In all of mankind’s history, there has never been more damage done than by people who “thought they were doing the right thing”. Lucy van Pelt (Peanuts; 1971) – in https://arfer.net/quotes Five cents is a small price to pay, Charlie Brown.

    Don’t ask why but Lucy reminded me of this…

    McCoy: In this galaxy, there’s a mathematical probability of three million Earth-type planets. And in all of the universe, three million million galaxies like this. And in all of that… and perhaps more, only one of each of us.

    [pause]

    McCoy: Don’t destroy the one named Kirk.

    Excellent content but terrible “bedside manner”.

    Actually, this pertains to things that are not wars…laws passed “for their own good.” Sexual repression, religious control over people’s lives, public and private, “Altruism is the root of all evil.” (Robert Heinlein, though the quote may be slightly inaccurate…quoted from memory.)

    I knew that there was 5 cents for Lucy in this story line somewhere!

    Lucy could be more compassionate. Charlie has done a fine act and needs to be complimented than given negative comments.
