Sadly, the coronavirus is going to teach us the hard way why it's so important that our leaders respect and seek truth, and place serving the American people before their own interests. The alternative, as Trump is demonstrating, costs dearly in lives and economic security.
Aspiring dictators prioritize their power and ill-gotten wealth above the people without moral limit or remorse, no matter how destructive for the countries they pretend to govern. This always puts them at odds with truth as they try to conceal their corruption and ineptitude.
But we continue to live within inescapable, omnipresent truth, the fabric of life itself, no matter how many lies the aspiring tyrant tells. For personal survival, benefit or ignorance, some submit to the dictator and pretend to live within his lies, while others refuse.
Regardless, the truth of everyday life eventually puts the tyrant in inevitable conflict with regular people trying to live their lives, stay healthy, get ahead a little, and be happy. This, the most mundane truth of life, is often what exposes and topples a tyrant.
