Having the qualities that are desirable or distinguishing in a particular thing; a good exterior paint; a good job b. Serving the desired purpose or end; superior to the average; a good student; valid or true, a good reason. no good: worthless, futile,useless; it's no good arguing with them.........

iniquity: 1. gross immorality or injustice; wickedness 2. a grossly immoral act; a sin.

Good and iniquity are diametrically opposing. But, the latter is amoral; Good deed to World Peace and Planet Survival should be our mantra today, tomorrow and forever.
