Good is good?

I’ve been wondering about ‘good’ lately, both in general and specifically in DnD alignment terms. What’s classed as good is a matter of perception, of course.

Boris Johnson probably perceives himself as Chaotic Good. The country/his friends need x to happen to get the best outcome; to hell with anything in the way of that and a grand plan isn’t actually necessary. He’s certainly chaotic.

I like to see myself as neutral good. There’s benefit in law, order, hierarchy and precedent. Planning and forethought are integral parts of good governance. But sometimes, just sometimes, you’ve got to circumvent the rules to make things better.

Vive la Révolution!
