英会話ブログ その812      Good vs Evil

2016/05/25

In the old days, when everything seemed a simple matter of black or white ?  yes or no ?  left or right ?  up or down ?  etc, decisions could be made quickly like snapping your fingers.

Then came color TV, the Vietnam War, the Kennedy assassination, the moon landings and the "proliferation" (expansion) of conspiracy theories.  Black and white became gray and politically the right side took over the left.  The rich and the super-rich took over the world.  Global warming became a reality.  Small wars spread like wild fires all over the earth.

Natural disasters have turned super-violent.  These "Acts of God" have become weapons of mass-destruction.

Terrorism is spreading around the globe like the plague.  ISIS has become a household "word".  Beheadings, bombings, crusifixions, shootings, drownings, etc. are as common as the "common cold".

The world has become an evil place.  Good seems to be losing the battle against the Darth Vader.  You might say, Donald Trump is as bad as they come.  He wants to be President of the U.S.A. !                                               (V.C)
