Question: Would life be more boring without crime?
Answer: Yes, since our whole life experience, perception, recognition unfolds through contrast, comparative research.
Thus without crime we would not know what justice, honesty is, without hate we would never know what love is.
This is why we Humans are all born as “criminals” – driven by a 100% egotistic, self-serving, self-justifying, exploitative, hateful and subjective nature – and only after recognizing and correcting our “sinful, evil” nature can we become “righteous”.
This is all an evolutionary necessity, in order to give us the unique conscious, independent Human ability to perceive, attain really from one extreme to the other.
Thus we become an objective, transparent observer of Nature’s perfect system in between negative and positive forces, inclinations, qualities.
