Please read the sentence:
But even tyrants tend to talk about power as if it is bad.
As far as I know ''as if'' can be used in subjunctive mood and it should be ''as if it were bad''. It can also be used in real conditional clauses , thus ''as if it is bad''. I am trying to explain the difference between the two:
as if it were bad: they don't think it is bad.
as if it is bad: they pretend to make people believe it is bad.
Is that right?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
But even tyrants tend to talk about power as if it is bad.Whether it is bad or not they tend to talk about it in a way that indicates that they think it is bad.
