Similarly, in the book Lord of the Flies, EVIL is presented as being innate, unwanted, even though it can be used to motivate and aid us in critical situations.

Fortunes (and misfortunes) are events that affect us significantly and are outside our control. Aristotle thinks that there’s some truth to “identify[ing] happiness with good fortune” (1099b5). This is because grave misfortunes seem to tip the balance and make the virtuous happy person unhappy: “[the blessed person] will … be shifted … from happiness … by many grave [misfortunes]” (1101a10). Aristotle considers that grave misfortunes affect us in two ways: first, by removing some of the external goods necessary for virtuous activity, second, by directly affecting the way we feel: “[grave misfortunes] will oppress and spoil what is blessed, since they bring distress with them and hinder many activities” (1100b30, emphasis added). This double impact of misfortunes coheres with the treatment of external goods as a pre-condition for the exercise of virtuous rational activity.
