It is astounding when a bad leader finds themself and their country in crisis. Crises increase one's popularity by default. Our beloved leader needs do nothing but take advantage of photo opportunities. They send some comforting words into a microphone and suddenly they are able to implement the worst policies that have yet been conceived. And the humans who become powerful in the political arena are those who have the least moral and ethical impediments.
At the very least there will be one crisis after another in the coming decades, because of the climate crisis.
