In 2020, the age-old debate over good versus evil still rages on. Or should that be battle? But is there any way to score the current landscape?
To judge the levels of which is winning or losing, I have a simple test.
What is the amount or saturation level of evil in society? Start by asking a question: what is the cost of doing the right thing? The answer is a good indication of the level of evil.
Ideally it used to be doing the right thing because it was the right thing to do, was just the rule. It was appreciated or even praised. And that was it. But that has changed.
It can be more complex these days.
Now doing the right thing can have consequences. There can be penalties. Sometimes one pays a stiff price for doing the right thing. Not always. Well, it could even be a heavy price at times. If you think about it realistically, you can see those areas.
So I think that cost is directly relative to the amount of evil there is. Not to oversimplify it; I’m not saying that is a hard rule in all situations but in general.
You could take that to another level with the amount of good or evil in the public sector. Consider what Trump tried to do. Consider the amount of resistance, by Resisters, to give you an idea what I mean. There is certainly a lot of resistance..
Then look at the resistance or cost inflicted by Antifa or BLM protestors in riots or looting. It drives the cost of doing the right thing higher. Look at the ability of cops to prevent it.
Look at how many cops were murdered for just doing their job. So I think all that, and the tally of the cost, is a reasonable indicator to the saturation level of evil there.
