When one evil reveals another.
I’d encourage you to read yesterday’s post before this one.
I don’t believe that this is the case for all nations, but if you were to draw all the nations that are sliding towards a totalitarian democracy on a straight line, I believe mine would be one of them. When emotion takes over from logic, our leaders start to behave in ways that are difficult, if not impossible, to understand. Impossible, because just like in any emotional spiral, it is very difficult for anyone to know all the levers that motivate certain behavior. In the case of elected officials, it is decisions, not behavior, that are in question. The fact that these humans hold important positions means that they possess power that is far superior to the population they govern.
Here, we have a mixture of personality, progressive triggering events, events among which history will be able to identify a tipping point, and a job role. This mixture can happen anywhere, whether it be in a country, a company, a volunteer group or at the center of a family. The one we are interested in today is the national context. How can we slowly slide towards evil when those who push us there do so in the name of good? Can we still talk about freedom?
