事必歸正 inevitable good ending

事 (event) 必 (must) 歸 (revert) 正 (right)

This is willful optimism.
That things are bound to end up being right, just, lawful, and good.

It's perhaps harder to imagine this scenario amid inevitable greed, inevitable
bubble, inevitable crash, inevitable debt, inevitable bailout, inevitable taxes, inevitable poverty, inevitable recession, inevitable war...

But there are also such things as inevitable bottom, inevitable recovery, inevitable growth, inevitable reward...

... inevitable justice, inevitable peace?

Ultimately, inevitable humanity.
Or else, the world will rightfully go to the dogs.
