Kissinger Karma

I find myself both deeply disturbed and morbidly curious about Kissinger’s philosophy of putting the world in the “correct” order without regard to human rights or international law. Isn’t this exactly how all brutal dictators think, from Putin to Assad to MBS to Xi and pretty much anyone else committing crimes against humanity? This “order over justice” approach only seems reasonable if you’re sure you’re never going to be on the wrong side of it. That’s what led me to draw Kissinger as the victim of his own doctrine.
