Putin, Kim Jong Un and others are not original or new in their approach. Hitler, Stalin and Mao all killed millions and millions of people in the 20th Century. In fact, by historical standards, these modern day dictators are almost nice when compared to their historical counterparts.
How in the 21st Century have we allowed more than two million people to live under autocratic regimes? Democracies are mocked as liberal extremism social experiments. The rights of all classes of people are not protected and millions die or are persecuted every day.
With the internet and 24 hour news, we, society have failed to express our outrage at this situation. In our race for cheap consumer goods from China, we have accepted injustice. We prefer Tik Tok and Insta Reels over political activism and discourse. Are we happy to accept the status quo? If not, vote, write to your local politician, don’t buy goods from autocratic countries and support democracies by voting and engaging.
All that is required for Evil to Thrive in the World is for Good People to do Nothing.
