    How to use "Manichean" in context?

    In Eastern religious thought, Manichean refers to the belief that the universe can be divided into two camps, the good and the bad. The bad are the evil, fallen, and corrupt, while the good are the pure, virtuous, and holy. Evil is believed to be the key cause of all problems, while goodness is thought to be the solution to all problems. In the Manichean worldview, this is a battle between good and evil that will never end.
