I am an agent for change. I thought I understood the need for change. I spent the first half of my adult life being buffeted around fortune 100 company toxic change. I then took control of change, and tried desperately to understand people needs within that toxic change cycle to try to break the vast injury that institutional change places on individuals.
I was talking to my wife about the debate last night, I am a liberal and consider myself someone who in the whole moderates my allegiance with Democrats as they are closer to helping less fortunate people of any kind, gender and race, society and countries.
What continues to shock me, is that on the whole, there is a cross section of educated and well read US citizens who are ready to vote for a racist, sexist, narcissistic bigot who could easily launch a nuclear weapon with no real regard to its consequence.
The disconnect lies in the wildly disproportionate degrees as to the two things these have to offer. I have helped hundreds if not thousands of people stare down the barrels of inevitability of change. Where is the moderator in this disastrous situation? Voting for a monster doesn’t guarantee positive change. In fact, if you look at Brexit, a whole nation woke up stunned it had happened. “We only wanted to shake things up”, my country for the most part is still in shock. But I live in the US now, and I love it, I love its energy and can do attitude.
Were are the use cases for political reform? What can we do to show its ok to have an established well respected career politician, while we do something about changing the stagnation of a political system? A system that allows for mediocrity to thrive and individuals to win over the common voice.
What can we learn from history, the many many cases where this kind of social experiment went wrong. Where people want to hit the big read easy button.
I am lost and I know many other people who are also lost, daily trying to fill in these blanks in there own minds.
I’m looking for what I am missing I’m not tasking a political statement, I really want to hear your views.
