Covid, the triumph of evil it is given above all thanks to inaction of the good
At least on this, Edmund Burke was right: in order for evil to triumph, it is enough for the good to give up acting.
That’s exactly what’s happening under the new capitalism without borders, in whose alienated spaces the triumph of evil, in its social and economic forms, is given above all thanks to inaction of the good, also thanks to the absence of activity aimed at rectifying what is there.
Because of this, Evil larger than our time coincides with sloth, with the suspension of doing aimed at improving what is there.
