Barrack Obama. on this his 1Oth day of office as
the 44th President of the United States of America.
”There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all who profit by the old order, and only luke-warm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order. This quality of lukewarmness arises partly from a fear of adversaries, who have the law on their side, and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had actual experience of it.”
Machiavelli - The Prince - 1513
May we “the peoples of the world” support you in your quest to re-establish the symbolism of democracy, in accordance with the common-sense collective values of the peoples of the USA; such that The White House [IT] SELF should become synonymous with the concept of Merchants of LOVE not Merchants of DEATH.
Information is explicitly the LIGHT of knowledge.
Instinctive, intuitive, insightful, innovative, initiative taking are tacitly and
collectively the Keep It Simple Sustainable solution to the attainment of an
understanding of the wisdom of knowledge.
THE wisdom of knowledge of understanding can only be manifested as a result
of THE INTEGRITY of appropriate responsible ACTION.
Just imagine opening the door to a common-sense MODEL of global politics, based on the collective mindset of the peoples of the USA "waiting for Republicans and Democrats to catch up with them”; such that you will forever “find it possible, in talking to these men and woman, to understand their motives, and to recognize in them values” which WE SHALL ALL SHARE.
A bottom-up, top-down model of equitable thinking, based on ...
”solving problems rather than winning arguments”.
A model based on integrity, responsibility and accountability, which
demonstrates an absolute commitment to ethical standards.
A model which acknowledges the USA's onerous responsibility, in the
process of providing a "fit for purpose" global solution, equal to its public
obligations to humanity, in line with retired US Supreme Court Justice,
Sandra Day O'Connor's statement that ...
"Professionalism requires adherence to the highest ethical standards
of conduct and a willingness to subordinate narrow self-interest in pursuit
of the more fundamental goal of public service."
A model fit for setting THE moral standard for ALL the peoples of the planet such that “whatever you do for the least of my bothers you do for me”.
As WE ALL find ourselves staring into the abyss and our leaders continue to espouse confrontational rather than common-sense collective solutions to the problems of our age - and then. in the context of your conversation with George Bush in 2004, that ...
“you had both got better than you deserved” -
WE APPLAUD your first step in acknowledging the urgent need to address
the equal rights of women, not just “their” long expected responsibilities.
ALL hail to THE Chief !
and IF ALL ELSE FAILS
JUST LISTEN TO THE CHILDREN
NO SURPRISE THERE THEN
