Sadly, what I see when I look at the political world lately is smallness. Where is the greatness, the integrity, the true service to others (the people)? We keep waiting and hoping. Perhaps it is too much to expect in a hierarchical system, a model that historically attracts the power hungry and easily corruptible to the top.
What then, is the remedy? Do we need a completely new model of governance, one that has previously never been explored? One that is not based on hierarchy? The prototypes humanity has tried thus far here on Earth do not seem to serve the people well.
