Evil rules because man is easily corrupted. There has always been within men that desire to stray to the dark side; to take the quick way; to step on
people and take advantage of them; to use deceit and violence to accomplish goals. I feel, personally, that that is just a part of human nature.
However, what prevents the majority of us from acting like that is our conscience (not necessarily religious in nature, either). We know that we
shouldn't behave that way. Unfortunately, over the years society has been molded into believing that the these are good qualities to have. It is
justified by saying, "Well, that's the way it is nowadays." But no one ever asks "Why?" Why is it that way? It doesn't have to be that way.
These aren't redeeming qualities. But the "Powers That Be" have so conditioned society that now most people consider it acceptable, even admirable.
A society which lacks a conscience will not punish their leaders for the same flaw.
The sad thing is we expect our leaders to be dirty. We expect our leaders to carry with them a certain degree of evil. And, if they're not evil
enough, the media will go out and find some evil. If there's nothing there, they'll invent it. They're giving the public what they want - evil.
Evil is expected. Evil is everywhere. Most importantly, evil sells.
As the great philosopher, Gordon Gekko, once said...
"Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary
spirit. Greed, in all of its forms, greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind."
Replace "greed" with "evil" and there you go.
