Looking at politicians the world over these days, it saddens me to realize that MOST would fail a grade school IQ test based on the way they act and their real knowledge of things BEYOND THEM in the world. I really don’t understand why the human race prefers to elect incompetent leaders at best with a lack of vision, fear of challenging the public to bigger and greater things. Why do we keep holding ourselves back, country by country and our entire race by these fools? They offer neither happiness nor fulfillment – replacing dramatic new ways of thinking with keeping the status-quo.
Some governments are “smart” – their solution to a populace that has lost interest in them is to force them to vote for them… instead of looking at the underlying issue causing most people to tune out. It’s easy to force somebody to do something – put a gun to a person’s head and they will do just about anything for you – but it’s hard to motivate somebody to want – DESIRE – to do something. That’s where true leadership comes from – a quality severely lacking in this world at the highest levels… where we can ill afford it!
