Once upon a time there was a great little good man in a great country.

Once upon a time there was a great little good man in a great country.

This is a fairytale with both a happy and a sad ending, whichever you prefer. This kingdom consisted of several big and mighty cities. As it happened, half of the kingdom consisted of 50% good people mixed together with half of the cities consisted of 50% bad people. For the example, let us assume that the good people lived together in a certain part of the city and the bad people lived for themselves in another part of the city, but it could just as well have been totally mixed! Sometimes the bad people lived in the inner city and the good people lived in the suburbs, but in other cities it was the other way around. The good and bad were of no particular color whatsoever on either side and there was no superficial distinction between them. But the people that runned the kingdom were all good people, or almost all of them were anyway. Counting all the good ones, they worked for a living and some of them were rich, and some of them were poor and had to work very hard for their living. The king’s advisory board saw to it that the cities prospered, but not alone, there were a lot of good people in all the cities of the kingdom whom all worked in the same direction and had the same wish of hope for their little children.

The rest were robbing and stealing and murdering people for a living, they were the evil ones.

Since the king was so good he one day thought of an idea, what if I switched the good people in the kingdoms advisory board with the poor bastards that had so little good spirit, from none of their own fault?! The king called it “change” and “hope”. The king managed to maneuver out the good people in the advisory board, whom had so much power. Come winter the king had replaced every good man in the advisory board with evil people. Now all the good people had no one to rely on for speaking in their behalf. But it was for a good cause – equality.

So what happened with this great kingdom when the good people in charge were removed from office, did the kingdom prosper under their new rulers? Or did the kingdom go downhill from their earlier glory? I think we all know the answer to that question. Remember, no one said anything about creed and color in this fairytale, it is just an intellectual experiment! Is it possible for such a kingdom with such a constellation of people and people in power to prosper? Of course in real life a flower can flourish in the worst of ghettos, and a bad apple can grow in the best of conditions, but we are speaking of generality. That is what people call “national character”, and it is important to understanding groups of people. The flower in the ghetto is the individual, and that is important too to understand humanity and being decent. So what happened with the kingdom?

You might reply that the good people may not have been so good since their elders and ancestors oppressed some of the bad people in the past. Ok, so why do you suggest a prosperous nation prosper? Is it race that determine prosperity? If that is your view then you are a racist, and that is exactly the running point!

What I am saying is that a society should let the good people into office and not allow affirmative action, as our king did in this example. If we do as I suggest, the flower that flourish in the ghetto will always stand a chance. But if we do as our king did, all the good people will become excluded from office eventually (color and creed irrelevant), and we will get a Robert Mgabe and a Zimbabwian system as soon as the good king steps down.

Lead on America! Or are you already finished, defeated by yourself?
