That awkward moment when Donald Trump says something that makes sense…
In a recent interview with CNN, presidential candidate and moldy orange Donald Trump said that the world was a much better place when Saddam Hussein and Gadhafi were in power. He believes that the nations of the now-dead rulers were less fractured, and today would’ve promoted a more stable Middle East.
“I mean, look at Libya. Look at Iraq. Iraq used to be no terrorists. He (Hussein) would kill the terrorists immediately, which is like now it’s the Harvard of terrorism,” Trump said. “If you look at Iraq from years ago, I’m not saying he was a nice guy, he was a horrible guy, but it was a lot better than it is right now. Right now, Iraq is a training ground for terrorists. Right now Libya, nobody even knows Libya, frankly there is no Iraq and there is no Libya. It’s all broken up. They have no control. Nobody knows what’s going on.”
I mean… he’s not wrong…
It comes down to what your preference is, I guess. Do you choose Darth Vader, or the Joker? You know the world is messed up when it literally makes you choose between the lesser of two evils.
Lawful Evil, to look at things in terms of character alignment, is generally preferable to Chaotic Evil. Lawful Evil believes that their actions are for the greater good. Hussein, Gadhafi, Hitler, and Darth Vader are Lawful Evil. They tend to enforce their will, no matter how horrible, to try and ensure stability.
Meanwhile Chaotic Evil evil just to be evil. This is the realm of school shooters, the Joker, and literally all of the Middle East right now. They love chaos, and they will spread it wherever they can.
At the very least, Lawful Evil is more predictable.
