Lawful vs Chaotic Good

A few weeks ago, Cyd Harrell retweeted this Twitter thread from Karla Monterroso (now a blog post) on Lawful Good vs Chaotic Good. It was inspired by Bernie Sanders dropping out of the primary, but there was a lot there that resonated on the process of making change in this world in general. I’ve since forwarded it to multiple folks.

I didn’t realize that Lawful Good and Chaotic Good are Dungeons & Dragons references. (Thanks, Alison!) It’s a handy framework. I’ve used it several times in conversations recently. It also relates well to the idea of changemakers who are “unemployable.”
