The present situation is that the world, and especially the rulers of the world, are extremely evil: more so than at any time in history, because their evil extends to the ultimate form of value-inversion.
Up to now, the masses have been - passively, and for short-termist and selfish gains, unconstrained by their Godless hedonism - going-along-with this top-down imposition of evil.
Consequently the masses are by-now also extremely evil; as is abundantly evident, apparently everywhere in the world, in 2020.
So, is there a realistic possibility - starting from where we Actually are Now, that there could be a movement to fight this evil?
It seems timely to ask this question because, as of two days ago - and for the first time in some decades; there does seem to be a powerful leader against-evil in the shape of the incumbent US president - who has made a strong statement of intent to fight the foundational Establishment evil of strategic, systematic untruthfulness, dishonesty and (ever Bigger) Big Lies.
Is it conceivable that this might be the start of a genuine 'movement' against this modern, global evil of untruthfulness? - which (I have often argued) is perhaps the single underpinning and most-pervasive evil of the modern world.
I feel that is so; this could be the start of something Good and Big.
And I am in no doubt about the rightness of the cause.
However, the moral fact that untruthfulness really is an evil, an important and growing evil, and ought to be fought; is by-itself not sufficiently motivating.
Experience tells us, without doubt, that to be effective in virtue; Men must have something to fight-for, as well as fight-against.
At present, Men are (I think, implicitly when not explicitly) being asked to fight-for democracy; that is, a kind of voting; which I regard as itself intrinsically tending-to evil (since it denies personal responsibility - and personal responsibility is the only kind).
In other words, I regard stealing an election as evil because it is dishonest; and not because it is 'undemocratic'. To fight against dishonesty but for democracy, is merely to exchange one evil motivation for another; and it would therefore be of little or no net value.
Indeed, it may even lead to worse things.
Other possibilities are equally unsuitable. For instance it would not be a good thing to fight-for US 'greatness' - since greatness is not a virtue; and the same applies to the varieties of peace, prosperity, comfort and convenience that might be proposed as positive goals.
I am, of course, saying that, on the one hand, Men will only fight when motivated; and, on the other hand, I am clarifying that - for Christians - only Christian virtues are genuinely worth fighting-for
For this potential movement to fight the evil of untruthfulness, and for this fight really to work (and I really hope that it will work) requires that the movement very swiftly becomes Christianised in its core positive motivation/s and values - Christian both among the leadership, and among the masses (or some of them).
I don't know if this will happen, but I do believe that it could happen.
I believe that a window has been created where such a thing is possible - if the right people, and enough people in the right circumstances, Do The Right Thing.
As always the responsibility lies with you and me - because nobody can know the consequences of their virtue.
Indeed, we should not even be trying to guess the probabilities of me-doing-good leading to good outcomes! That is devil's work!
We can only do it right, right-now; and then see what happens - which itself further depends on what other-people do, which itself partly depends on what we ourselves have-done.
In the end it is down to us each to Do Right - Right Now.
