As tearful British Prime Minister Theresa May departs 10 Downing Street, Angela Merkel’s party’s power continues to diminish in Germany and ferocious Nicola Sturgeon relentlessly continues to argue for Scottish independence, a new type of more caring, compassionate and, above all, FEMININE Political Leader is emerging on the other side of the world…
Jacinda Ardern has won worldwide praise for her exemplary, intuitive leadership – including a tribute from the Dalai Lama, who described her as a ‘wonderful lady’ who is a ‘living example’ of how to handle terror. Her emphasis on wellness-based policies have put health and the environment high up in New Zealand’s political agenda.
Meanwhile, over in America, Donald Trump continues to whip up support amongst disaffected voters by spitting out offensive tweets daily, issuing trade tariff threats and generally getting his way through sheer intimidation.
Last week, 2020 Presidential contender Marianne Williamson issued this impassioned statement on how Love can triumph over Fear:
“Donald Trump—regardless of whether or not you agree with any of his policies—has introduced a mean-spiritedness into our politics that is literally corrosive to our democracy. It assaults the moral fabric of our nation. It shows disrespect for American values. And that must not be allowed to stand.
Trump has succeeded in doing those things despite heroic efforts to stymie him. What has been the key to his ‘success?’ The answer does not lie within the purview of traditional politics. He’s been able to do what he’s done because he is a master manipulator of emotions. He has done what he has done by harnessing the power of fear.
And the only thing that can defeat the power of fear is the power of love. The only one who can defeat a big liar is a teller of big truths.
The only candidate who will defeat Donald Trump is someone who can harness the power of love.
The president has had a career harnessing fear, and I have had a career inspiring love. I have seen what love can do to transform one person’s life, and I have seen what love can do to transform large groups of people. Those of us who feel that our love for each other, for the peoples of the world, and for the earth itself provide the only sustainable option for the human race, must harness our collective conviction now. For conviction is a force multiplier; those of us who love must love with as much conviction as that which is displayed by those who hate.
Our love for our each other, for the planet, and for our descendants is beckoning to all of us: let’s turn love into a political force.
Some say it’s naïve to think that our capacity to love each other is key to our collective future. I say that what’s naïve is for humanity to think we will have a future for another hundred years, if we do not.
Faith in love is not blind; faith in love is visionary. Love is the key that unlocks every door, and that includes to the White House in 2020.
Let’s do this now…
Here in the UK, many are watching in dismay at how Donald Trump is setting our children a terrible example of leadership via hatred, division, conflict, verbal abuse and putting money above all other considerations. When will the people of the US wake up and see the damage that Trump is doing to their global brand?
The world needs more feminine leaders – like Jacinda Ardern – to lead us out of the darkness and into the Light.
We are praying that Marianne Williamson is elected as one of them.
