📡 Do You Think That Politicians Nowadays Are Less Capable Than They Used to Be?
In the past, we have seen great political leaders whose wisdom is still inspiring to this day. The likes of Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, and Soekarno (for Indonesians) are tremendous both in their time and now. Even we can feel their powerful aura from their recorded speech and oration.
The one thing that I find inspiring from these great political leaders in the past is that they don’t try hard to be politically correct. They say their intention clearly and concisely. Furthermore, there is a strong and powerful intention in their speech which strongly influence the listener.
But, nowadays, I have not found a political leader whose speech has strong intention as well as truth. What do you think? Do the politicians nowadays are less capable than they should be?
Politicians nowadays are only after selfish interests especially the riches of the world. They are not anymore driven by ambition to help their people but their stomach and family members. It’s especially so in developing world where they are fond of plundering resources which would be for the development of the country to feed their personal interests. Personal interests should never be put a head of national interests at all, but this has not become synonyms with our current politicians. It’s a a shame 😔
That breed of capable and people centered politicians is long gone, it’s history and I don’t think we see such politicians again.
Politician this days are still what they are, they can never change. They are just being self centered
Jackson — It seems that we have lost confidence in our public servants. The days when political leaders are the source of inspirations seem to be over.
Kenneth — Although there are still good politicians, your claim is not baseless. Every day we see how our politicians act solely for personal gains.
