There are two definitions to good. There's the definition of good referring to morality, such as good vs. evil, and there's the definition of good referring to objective claims, such as good vs. bad.
Neither of these definitions are similar to or mean "like" and it's subjective variants. When you say "something is good," you're not saying "I like something."
So why is there such a prevalent use of the word "good" being interchangeable with "like" in our society?
Why use the word "Good," something that's been useful for defining positive moral and objective qualities, to describe something you like but have little knowledge of, when you could simply use the word "like" because the predetermined definition is much different and actually applies to your stance?
Saying "I like thing" versus "thing is good" will prevent people from being pointlessly debated over opinions. It's standoffish.
But "like" simply refers to something you, yourself, find enjoyable, satisfactory, or agreeable (and not necessarily agreed upon.)
That's not even close to "good," something that is good would outright benefit humanity.
The fuck is wrong with prescriptivism? Do you seriously think that african american vernacular english is just as useful for conveying english than formal english? You could argue that's a strawman argument, but that's exactly what you're fucking saying.
Get the fuck out of here you stupid nigger.
Words are meaningless and society gives them meaning. If we allow our words to devolve back into meaninglessness, then humans would go extinct because it'd be impossible to communicate effectively. This is easy, basic shit that a 1st grader could understand.
