Doing good deeds for people does not always lead to beneficial results Even if something is done with good intentions there is always the possibility that it can backfire and actually cause damage There is a large dependency on what the person doing the deed sees as good Also deeds done with good intentions do not always result in wholly good outcomes Actions can have a positive effect on the situation at hand but in turn have a negative effect on some related situation There is also the possibility that an action may prevent something better that would have otherwise occurred When a person tries to help another the deed that is done might only appear beneficial to the person trying to be generous For example when a samurai is defeated in battle but is not killed rescuing them may appear to be the humane thing to do However the samurai would see dying in combat much more honorable than fleeing In this point of view is the key factor in deciding whether or not the action taken is truly good Giving starving people food from an animal they held sacred would achieve a similar result If a country wished to ship relief materials which included beef into a country highly populated by Hindus a seemingly good deed could turn disastrous The Hindus would not only have no use for the meat but also be offended by the offer because the Hindu people regard the cow as a holy animal The amount of good that is done is again dictated by point of view In a milder way if a person having software issues is using a program that is outdated a technician might see upgrading to a newer program as the simplest solution If the user is familiar with and likes the program that he or she is using then that person may see learning how to use a new program as a hassle
