For Me to Win You Must Lose Everything

From The Ethical Skeptic:

The friction of corruption inside an economic value chain – the diminishing of ethics, dispersion of hope, and dilution in humanity – these things, and not simply economics, are the reasons why economies fail under the weight of their ‘inflation’.

…I don’t mind a different team winning political elections. I am a moderate. A Republican who has voted 40% Democrat in the past. I sometimes irritate friends by being pro-choice, pro legalization of marijuana, for an increase in the minimum wage and against the abuse of wage-earners, and generally for robust healthcare options for all citizens. But the 2020 election has served to raise my hackles a bit. This current ‘you must be utterly destroyed in order for me to win’ zero-sum game political vitriol is unparalleled in American history. It’s origins reside solidly in this resurgence of Royalty.
