While elections are about promises, 2020 elections are more about broken promises.
The American 2020 Elections; the world’s most longest, expensive and dramatic elections may produce a “Mail-order-President” as 300 million may end voting by mail. President Trump calls it the “biggest risk” to his election. The jury is out, the fights to start and curtain about to rise.
Wars of Silence: In a world where economic dysfunctionalities are now visible from space, muffled and gagged, the total absence of real truth-seeking authoritative national debates on hardcore issues of small and midsize economy is where the silent anaconda of incompetency resides. All over the world, silence on these internal economic development issues are now becoming proof of incompetency and further creating increased restlessness.
Elections are about promises; 2020 elections are more about broken-promises. Making America great again is a noble cause, but making America united again is much nobler. Americans have been on a political roller coaster; tossed in pre-election promises, post election struggles, pre-impeachment claims, post impeachment disasters, pre-elections warning, post election fears now await a curtain rise.
The White House, like a glass house in a hail-storm, the fury and dust from the world’s most expensive and extremely lengthy US election will offer the global populace front row seat on what hidden inside America, while Americans submerged in deep global interactivity will also watch the rear view of what is now openly visible to the outside world about America.
The out of control hyper-cyber-social-media dragon will swallow its own tail in real-time.
The negativity of the messages in USA will imprison numb-minded-citizenry into common-sense defying captivity pushing limits on what comes out of mouth testing constitutional freedoms of expressions. The brainwashed dystopian populace already stacking up bunkers justifies the pending horror. The candidates must bring substance otherwise rhyming sound bites in repeats will sound more like Karaoke nights in search of music.
Nevertheless, democratic elections are great transformational junctions for any nation as this is how citizenry rediscovers its hidden core values to realign with harsh realities and often advances.
Pandemic recovery cannot allow the same thinking that created the last models, the same systems that strangled it and the same incompetency that burn down all the opportunities. The future is advancing, the exhausted populace is awakening and global-age shifts are realities but the anaconda of incompetency is strangling any new thought leaderships. When will the national leadership declare the open debates on reality and truth as national agenda of transformation? When will the dawn of new enlightenment of real value creation for local prosperity, with tolerance and diversity emerge? When will the truth start?
Mirrors on the walls: when fixing obesity demands a life-size mirror, the local citizenry must also find a large enough nation-size mirror. Humankind is no longer exclusive to one nation, one culture or one color, unlike old empires where sun never set, now it sets and rises within every nation every day. The world is changing very fast; this is no longer a cliché as it is now an explicit warning.
Choose very wisely and plan the coming 1,000 days.
Pandemic recovery is shaking down the economic trees of nation-by-nation; the already upskilled nations with emotional endurance and good infrastructure will play big hand in developing new methodologies. Same goes to for barebones stripped highly populated developing nations, as with only a single mobile digital device they can bypass stages and jump on to the latest digital platforms and enjoy the ride. Stuck are the mediocre nations, deeply stuck in bureaucracies and refusing to global age changes. Overall, the change will create a new world.
America must embrace national mobilization of entrepreneurialism protocols and upskilling millions of SME on innovative excellence and exportability. The futurism is workless; the march of the billion jobless on the main boulevards of the world is the next calamity and sooner the deployments the better.
The remains of year: now that the most anticipated year 2020 have shown how world can lose so quickly its shine in the first half, now we watch what happens in the next remaining half. Every single day will have a critical test, nation-by-nation, history made; critical thinking and demographic shifts will define new economic and sustainability models. We must embrace technologies as our growth patterns. Finally, the calamities may enforce living in diversity, tolerance and equality a possible path to grassroots progress.
Plan carefully and discuss openly.
