MR POPULAR AND HIS FELINE SOLUTIONS
K. Rudd is now the most popular PM since Robert Hawke???
I still can't understand why Hawke was so popular anyway. He had a typical ALP low understanding of economics and contributed nothing to the greater good of this country. The only thing that he had was CHARISMA ! In fact that appears to be the pattern of all of these so called "popular leaders" in history. Evil and Good aside, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Mao, Pol Pot, Whitlam, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton all had huge narcissistic personalities and if we look at a few current day "Popular World Leaders" such as Al Gore, Rudd and Obama I can now start to see the link.
The true problem that we have as a society is not these ego-maniacal leaders , they will always come and go, the problem is our inability to commend and promote based on their individually proven ability and talent to get the job done as we see it in this Western democracy. Unfortunately the brain drain which started in the sixties via the "Useful Idiots" in Hollywood and now in the Television and Radio and Newspaper industries (let's just say the entire mainstream media and entertainment world) has changed our very perception and ability to recognise a fake from the real and to idolise people because of the manner that they project themselves in the celebrity and political world to the masses.
A good friend introduced me to the following speech from a better man than those that we hold up as leaders today. It speaks clearly of today's politicians and industry leaders that we have allowed to brainwash us for so long. I hope you agree, because if you do then I can still see hope for the future of our way of life a better way of life than the alternative.
Oliver Cromwell's Speech on the Dissolution of the Long Parliament, Given to the House of Commons
20 April 1653
It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money; is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? is there one vice you do not possess? ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves become the greatest grievance. Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God's help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do; I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place; go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. In the name of God, go!
Yes, but only we can make them GO !
