The world is in desperate need of Leadership to calm the panic and allay the fears that have crippled the normal flow of commerce. We need someone we can respect, who has the stature, the intellect and the ability to give the world confidence that, at last - at long last, there is now a leader who has the personality and the moral authority, to do what is best for the world. There is a need for statesmanship, high statesmanship. There is an urgent need to energize people, to activate latent human creativity and to give direction and hope to the world. A true World Leader, someone who can give us back some control over events in our lives. Once we lose even the perception of control, we tend to lose hope.
Such a leader must rise above tawdry party politics, and what he, or she, wants for their particular country. This leader must have a broader vision and to look to the needs of the world at large, for humanity. Because this is a human problem, it needs a human solution. It is people who are suffering – not money. People have attached themselves to money; they have made a statement that money identifies their position in the world and thus who they are. This is a tragedy. Human beings have the ability to rise above such limiting ideas when they come to realise that they are more than possessions. There is a grandeur and a greatness attached to the Human Psyche that transcends materiality. Once realised, it lifts the spirits of those who are weighed down by their fears; it shines a light in the dark corners of the mind and the fearsome shadows lurking there are shown to be what they are – just shadows.
This leader, and from the melting pot that is the current chaos and despair, a person of real stature will surely arise, will be someone who has a unique opportunity to show true statesmanship and bring unity to the world. At this time we all face the same trials and tribulations, the same loss of confidence; we have the same fears and doubts. There is a real concern about whether we will be able to make the next mortgage payment, or possibly where the next meal will come from. At this time any particular person’s best interests are the world’s best interests.
The current travesty, called ‘leadership’ in America, will soon come to an end. My hope and the World’s best hope is that whoever becomes the next President of the USA will be a person with the strength of character, the intellect, the courage, the moral fibre and wisdom to lift the world out of the recession, or even the depression, that now appears to be the situation. This will be a Herculean task.
This person will have to be the next American President because there is no other country with the strength, the regenerative powers or the inherent creativity to do what is necessary to firstly, solving its own problems and then secondly, applying its latent goodwill and moral authority – now gravely tarnished – to the task of curing the world’s current malaise.
Good luck to whom-so-ever it is.
