There are always complaints about those running the country. One can feel the anger and disgust in them!

.. where they forced schools to reopen–even the reluctant ones–and no more than a day later closed them. Human I can live with. Incompetent, though? They have no right to be running a country.’

Many politicians are in this pandemic for the first time too! Their decisions are usually based on experts’ advice, lol aren’t they?

Quote:-

A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.

  1. You will have to excuse my ramblings, but I thought I would share some of my thoughts. Running a country is never easy, either at the macro (national) or the micro (state/local) level. I have been rattling around in the “halls of power” for longer than I can remember and had the opportunity to influence policy, both at the macro and micro level. I have had the opportunity to speak my mind as well with decision makers. Of course, I have been a decision maker myself.

    I live in a state that has survived the ravages of COVID extremely well (9 deaths out of 2.6M people), but our sister states have not been so fortunate because of certain decision makers. We started off together, as one, but other interests have gotten in the way of that. We are sticking to our guns where I am – making some very well informed decisions up to this point. Next week, I will be in meetings advising at the local level, in some places, to prepare for what now seems the onslaught that is coming. What it all comes down to in the end, is that you make the most of what you have.

    As for Churchill, he was a great person, a politician that learned from the monumental mistakes he made in the first part of his political career – mistakes that cost many lives in WW1 and we, in the antipodes (colonies), were angry at him for it. However, when it came to WW2, he eventually got it right, and ultimately, he was in the best position possible to make such decisions, as the executive leader of his country and key influencer throughout the Commonwealth.

    1. I agree! Country leaders need good experts’ advices or mistakes can be costly!

  2. You’re right, because leadership is the microcosm of the society. According to John C Maxwells. A person who knows the way goes the way and teach the way
