Do you see evil in a corrupted but otherwise good system, or do you see only an evil system?
It goes without saying that most modern people do not perceive any evil in the System at all. In fact, I will be so bold as to say the vast majority are oblivious to existence of the System itself. As you would expect, the question I asked in that 2019 post was not aimed at the majority, but rather at members of a small, perceptive minority whom I categorized into two distinct camps: those who regarded the evil in the System as mere corruption, and those who appraised the System as intrinsically evil.
The post was shared on several blogs and went on to be one of my most viewed of 2019. Surprisingly, the question I posed in the post proved rather contentious and sparked considerable debate - well, considerable for my blog anyway. Agreement about wholesale corruption within the System was unanimous among comments, but this consensus splintered once possible origins or causes of the corruption were put on the table.
As I mentioned above, I published the post in October, 2019. Repeating the question I posed then in light of everything that has transpired since strikes me as superfluous.
Peace be with you if you are among those who still maintain that the System is merely corrupted.
If you are among those who are inclined to think differently, be of high spirits!
Decisive recognition and acknowledgement of systemic evil was the whole point of 2020. We are now free to focus our energy and time on the Good, which, in the here and now, resides almost exclusively beyond the System.
