The writing around the Force has been inconsistent but, yes, originally it wasn’t Light Side vs Dark Side it was “The Force” proper vs “The Dark Side.” The Jedi believe in maintaining the natural balance of the world, the Sith believe in forcing it to their will. One could argue that was why the Jedi becoming generals in the Clone Wars played into the hands of the Dark Side. They were meant to keep the peace, not fight wars.

Again, the writing has become terribly inconsistent over the years but initially it lines up with the idea of evil as the corruption of something originally good as opposed to being an inherent opposing force that balances the other out.
