Are corrupt governments a positive thing?
Of course not. But, I'm sorry. Merely willing them to be positive is not going to feed the kids nor cause armies to throw down their weapons.
Rather, that can be done with knowledge -- knowledge that often times they are not fighting the enemy they think. Knowledge that there are innocent children wrapped up in this adult world of chaos and fighting.
There is no greater sin, or negative act, than merely pretending these things do not exist and skipping down the road whistling "Life is good."
