I guess maybe I like the similarity to biblical parables- I keep thinking we've had a shepherd problem, on many scales.
On one scale, Trump wins. On another, people in the Vatican are still letting this Argentinian leftist do his heretic pope bit.
But this stuff happens in schools, parishes, families, etc...
The shepherd was hired for one set of sheep, manages to lose them all, and then pretends he's still doing his job.
If the owner comes and sees his old sheep aren't there, and here are these other sheep, he's going to be pissed off.
In the bible, God would be the owner.
In America, everybody is the owner, so nobody is. A bad shepherd gets away with this crap for longer periods of time.
Funnily enough, there's this strong tradition of private property in America, yet it doesn't work because there are million bureaucrats who have more of a say over your patch of ground than you do.
