Take authority and responsibility from the politician to the self to change the world.
“Dear politicians, you fail, try better,” said a frustrated WordPress blogger today. It is a universal truth that most politicians are natural failures, this will never change.
Whilst the individual pushes responsibility onto politicians to solve world problems, and waits on the politician to respond, nothing will happen. The power to change the world rests with self, by changing our individual choices and actions.
There are four issues that make politicians failures:
1. Ego, power and money. Their reasons are selfish, thus unless you have something to bribe or threaten them with, expect no changes. The idealistic politicians are few, isolated and eventually eliminated.
2. Dogma. Mostly all politicians come to power because of their affiliation to a religion or political party. Often dogma cancels out wisdom. Most politicians are slaves to dogma.
3. Slavery. Often a politician is enslaved to a special interest group, or individuals who bankroll and keep them in power. They won’t go against the people who feed them.
4. The System. However idealistic or good intentioned the politician is, they have to play to the system. To get anywhere deals are often made with rivals and special interest groups to push through any decision. The short-term of office means decisions are made for short-term gains rather than the long-term to stay elected.
To change the world, forget about the politician. Take back responsibility and authority from the politician and make the difference through taking choices and actions in your own life. If enough people start taking power into their own hands, the power of the politician diminishes and they will follow the people like an obedient puppy.
