But not only morality is involved. So too is strategy.
Annatar of course the people can survive almost anyone being in power. That was the history of the monarchies of Spain, France, England, etc. Some king died and his son took over. Inherited power. The people suffering through the whims of some king salivating the land or wealth of his neighbor who was another monarch with a big ego. Who has to pay for all that naked greed and ambition? The people.
Republican forms of government abolished the inherited wealth nobility scene. Are we going back to those times? The world has witnessed not inherited wealth power groups. Got to eliminate the mechanisms keeping a real democracy from being implemented without the pressure from the oligarchs and the plutocrats whom have reared their ugly heads again in himan history. Knock them off the power seat. That is the solution. Not hoping some corrupt conman is going to be used by the Almighty as a lightning rod against some corrupt liberals who never respect the traditions of the hard working and traditional.
