I have a gentle, self-effacing friend in Britain I would be happy to vote for as President of Earth. This is because he would not exercise power, and so would not be corrupted by it. He would make sure all the decisions were made by those most qualified, on the best available evidence, rationally, calmly, with decency and compassion.
When he reads this (because he is a follower of Bobbing Around), he will not recognise himself from this description. That of course is one of the necessary qualifications for the job of President of Earth.
Another is a sense of humour that cheers up my day. Isn’t spreading smiles around the globe a necessary requirement?
But most important is a quirky imagination that connects up dots that were previously strangers to each other. To see what I mean, please read his latest post.
It is short, but may well make you think for a long time.
