Gods And Fools
“Might is right”?
Those who want to be regarded as gods are fools; they assume might is right with no understanding of the reality that you cannot fool everyone.
“You can fool all of the people some of time;
you can fool some of the people all of the time,
but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”
– Abraham Lincoln.
In Plato’s Republic (375 BCE), justice is famously defined as “I say that justice or right is simply what is in the interest of the stronger party”. Socrates asks Thrasymachus in whose interest this is, and Thrasymachus replies that it is in the interests of the ‘ruling classes’.
It is they who make the laws of the city – whether it is a tyranny, aristocracy or democracy – and therefore it is they who say what is right or wrong. In other words, morality is just a screen for power.
Still think there are no conspiracies?
Evil uses the power of illusion to make us believe we are impotent.
