It had some harsh effects on the Fellowship, and some of the towns where the battles were fought. But by and large I'd say most of Middle Earth is doing pretty well at the end of the trilogy. Thus good perserveres. I guess it's a question of how much good suffers as a result.

He is probably referring to symbolism more than anything. Frodo comes to mind; in the end, his victory was his own destruction. Sure in a literal sense he survived, but in a symbolic sense he was separated from everything he cherished and loved. If frodo is the symbolism for good, being that he represented purity more than any of the other characters in the fellowship, then it's reasonable to conclude that good sacrificed itself to preserve a balance in the world.

Again I think it depends on how you measure it. If good = Frodo, then ya totally he's right. But if good = all of middle earth, then I think he's wrong. Interesting view point though.
