Was Gadhafi evil?

Good morning, Netizens...


There is an abiding battle occurring around the world, even here in Spokane, between good and evil. In my years of writing for Community Comment, I have spoken of it with some degree of hesitation, lest I become overly enamored of hearing myself reiterate the same message over and over again. As much as I would like to believe that essential goodness is winning in the race for domination, it does seem, at times, as if evil is still holding all the trump cards, given the number of tyrants, dictators and various other persons who would do evil as part of their domination of their portions of the world.


While I do not always agree with cartoonist David Horsey's point of view, I do have to state with absolute conviction that he often states opinions which truly need to be heard, whether you nor I are accepting of them or in agreement thereto. This morning, he depicts Gadhafi in death, by stating all tyrants stand on shifting sand which, when you come to think of it, is both pretty concise and accurate.


The rest of living life as a tyrant is how long you manage to survive before someone bigger comes along and puts you out of commission. So the real question about life and living is are we willing to stand on that evil foundation of shifting sand or do we always search for the solid ground of goodness?


Libya's future seems all the more uncertain despite Gadhafi's death. Of course your interpretation of this may differ.
