This line of thinking is deluded for two reasons.
First, it defines Ahriman — the System — as corrupted but otherwise inherently good.
Second, it still holds to the belief that people maneuvering within the Ahrimanic System — blinded by errant ideology and enslaved by material obligations and debts— are largely ignorant of the havoc they wreak but will inevitably be forced to confront the havoc when “things get bad enough” and will thus be sincerely motivated to set things right.
Following this line of thinking, a company that hired unqualified people to appease the ruling ideologies of the day will eventually wake up and smell the coffee once their misguided hiring decisions begin to derail the company or reduce profitability.
After that, they will have no choice but to fire the unqualified and replace them with the genuinely qualified, conveniently pooled from the very people they previously rejected and considered discommodious.
Hence, the only thing that deplorable but otherwise competent people have to do is bide their time. Their moment to shine and reclaim what is rightfully theirs will come as soon as things “really begin to fall apart.”
As alluring as this line of thinking may be, it is utterly oblivious to the Sorathic elements permeating the Ahrimanic System. Unlike Ahriman, Sorath aims to destroy, not enslave.
The Ahrimanics are not blind to the destruction. It’s worse than that. Sorath has cast a spell over them. They sincerely believe they are controlling the destruction; that they are ultimately the masters of the desolation over which they preside.
This belief that they can keep the ruination “in check” will deter them from attempting to set things right.
The more things fall apart, the more they will convince themselves of their efficient and effective supervision, which will deter them from taking the sorts of actions and making the sorts of decisions needed to set things right.
