Followers listen, Policy makers think, Politicians talk, and Leaders do.
It works, it sort of works, and it doesn’t work. The first is great, the second is good and can be made better, and the last you should admit and try something else.
Note doesn’t apply to politicians!!
First Past The Post electoral system logic
“One vote more then everyone else and you are everything. One vote less then anyone else and you are nothing.”
“Democracy is to politics as process is to result.”
“Whats the difference between a crowd and a mob?
A crowd is a group of individuals, a mob only has the one.”
“I don’t know why politicians have problems with their Peter Principle, it’s so small”
The famous quote by Lord Acton is wrong, its not power per se that’s the problem. The quote should say.
“Its the desire to gain or retain power that corrupts and the desire to achieve or hold absolute power that corrupts absolutely”
“What’s the difference between a conservative and a neo-con or a liberal and a socialist? A conservative or liberal puts their political philosophy in the context of society. For the neo-con or socialist their ideology is the context.”
“If you put the policy cart before the factual horse, instead of looking at one, you are one”
