The Inevitable Triumph of Goodness over Evil: A Historical Perspective

"Evil, embodied by authoritarianism, is inherently weak, ineffectual, and cowardly. In contrast, goodness, marked by justice, equality, and compassion, is inherently strong, effective, and courageous—endowing societies with resilience and progress." Michael Corthell Throughout history, the world has witnessed the rise of authoritarian and fascist regimes, characterized by the concentration of power, the suppression of dissent, and the glorification of a single authoritative figure. While these movements have often appeared formidable, a closer examination reveals a fundamental truth: evil, as embodied by these ideologies, is inherently weak, ineffectual, and cowardly, while the goodness that opposes it is strong, effective, and courageous.

Is this what we should be fearful of today, two weeks before the inauguration of Joe Biden? It's a strong 'maybe' and here is why I say maybe. While vigilance over our democratic values is never misplaced, the difficulty with anticipating the transformation of the Trump presidency into a dictatorship is that we have to disregard the true nature of his administration. Trumpism is not tyranny in disguise, led by a clown, it is clownish narcissism in the guise of a tyrant. Trump had no interest in either taking over the world or in subjugating America’s citizens. He wanted to hold onto power so that he could go on flooding us with his bullshit to further enhance his brand. But, he may now feel that he must stay in power, becaus
