Given that idealistic situation, the counter to the rewards of doing right is that you get nothing, therefore not doing right would then be considered evil as you do not reap the benefits. Beyond a certain point everyone will be expected to reap the same benefits and not having those benefits is regarded as a punishment. Good and evil will thus always exist.

By the way Lus, he was actually replying to me with the "emotional appeals" and "you must prove your case". Just saying.
