As things stand, does anyone think world leaders can solve world problems? I trust not, and hope you are open to the idea that world leaders should take advice, but who from? When the UK’s Labour Party lost the election in 2015 I wrote to them urging them to first look at new social, economic and environmental solutions: a new ideology for their party, but they went ahead and chose a new leader. Some ‘moronic MPs’ nominated Jeremy Corbyn. The other candidates, Kendall and Burnham, were what I describe as managerial politicians: ones that claim to be able to bring people together, reconcile and make the best decisions at the time depending on global economic conditions. One could compare Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio to these managerial politicians. As we know now, people had had enough of these characters, and those ‘left behind by globalisation’ rose up, choosing Brexit, Corbyn and Trump.
So how do we get politicians to look at comprehensive new political plans so these political dead ends can be avoided? It is not out of the question for them to develop the interest to look at (new) Rationalism – but we can better rely on change if millions join us, learn, contribute and promulgate.
