politicians - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
For those that seek power, empathy is a disadvantage, and yet is essential for sound decision making. Both the empathy and logic parts of the prefrontal cortex must be functioning for good choices. Thus in a power dynamic system, politicians will become less adept and making good choices for society - the opposite of what we require for sustainability and peace. As such we need to socially evolve from the money-nexus into the love-nexus with small changes that add up to a migration of spirit within our institutions. Politicians who are enabled to serve, where empathy is an advantage for them, will become a blessing to society. Love should always be an advantage for, with logic, it is the flashlight we all need.
The world needs a plan that coordinates a global response for all world citizens to:
The water crisis - in terms of both farming and drinking water

Food insecurity caused by desertification of once fertile land
Homelessness and cramped/unsanitary living conditions
Debt slavery and its impact on health and childhood adversity
World forestry decline
Bee, pollinator and insect population crisis
Decline in fish stocks and ocean health
Pollution of air, land and sea
Risk of pandemics from novel and known pathogen threats
Threats to liberty and freedoms in face of authoritarian and facist rule
Threats to true democracy and honest communication vs propaganda.
Access to contraception
Access to medical care, especially vaccination programs and maternal/infant care.
Access to a quality education with special consideration for women and girls.
Education styles that squanders human innate genius.
If it isn't one plan that deals with all threats concurrently, then you aren't bright enough to lead anyone and should start listening to people who are.
A Generation That Wants a Planet for their Children to Live On.
People in power are there because they crave it, they are the least suitable to lead yet that is all our current system can give us - power hungry sociopaths. And to any politician who thinks that isn’t true, stand up and say what state the earth is really in with no sugar coating. Say that the banks and corporations bought your loyalty long ago and you don’t represent us because in your expensive private education you learnt that the rest of us are peasant scum. Even if you do this, though I’ll think of you more highly, your time is done. It’s time nice guys finished first and Love wasn’t seen as weakness but the greatest strength humans will ever know. Love with a fiery passion, Love with the heart of a lion, Love without borders, Love like your life and the planet depends on it, because it does.
