wiifm (what’s in it for me?) is best (imo) tempered by an overarching philosophy / worldview / purpose / ideal. In short, what’s in front? What are the horses driving the carriage? The enlightenment? Or the self-interest? They may travel together but somebody’s in the lead.
The problem I see at the moments the stage is now set as “us America vs you Americans” and THAT’S a bad way to go forward. It means people will be uncooperative with the leadership and more time will be spent with “he said / she said” rather than stuff getting accomplished.
But the change for that has to take place among the people who won, who are still behaving as if they’re the outsiders when in fact, they’re now – you’re now – the insiders.
oh i’m not a fan of msm either or govt spin.But I don’t see a “new honesty” happening among leadership either. But who knows? Maybe you’re right. Time will tell.
et the hot tempers fly I guess. Cooler heads can prevail at the lower levels to prevent catastrophes then. We’re entering the age of rulers whose words will be paid attention to by the people and other leaders, but whose governments will clean up after then to avoid catastrophes.
Can you handle *not* being the renegade anymore and instead a speaker for the establishment?
