Misguided people get terribly concerned about whether the destructive activities of the leadership class are deliberately evil by motivation, or merely incompetent: "conspiracy or cock-up" as the saying goes.
It's a nonsensical dichotomy, since neither excludes the other.
But more fundamentally, evil is incompetent to the degree it is evil. Because evil is corrupt, it is not interested in being effective or efficient. Evil cannot be competent, because evil is dishonest - and dishonesty sabotages competence.
Now that the evil which rules this world is becoming more advanced in corruption (as evil feeds upon itself) then its incompetence has become so extreme as almost to serve as a cover for the evil!
But the fact is, these are two sides of a coin. We are getting incompetence on a scale never seen in world history; cock-ups so extreme as to seem impossible.
Yet the root of it is deliberately motivated evil: opposition to all that is Good, of Good, divinely-created...
