Nero, or Trump, Zuma and the like…
Are these true leaders or are they opportunists who have taken advantage of the anger of the masses and appealed to their more basic and less intellectual demands that “Someone has to do something to help us now!”?
Zuma has distracted this beautiful land’s people, parliament and civil society away from building together and has instead succeeded in charging us all emotionally which, again, reduces the ability to think rationally and calmly.
We need to get behind the wagon and start helping push it up the hill, instead of helping it slide down the hill taking the helpless oxen and driver with it.
The stock markets in the US are surging. why? Greed. Not because people feel that these countries are being governed by wise men or that their policies are going to improve their societies now and into the long term. These are short run promises which these leaders are well aware will appeal to the uneducated and/or very angry mobs out there.
I am worried about the markets in the next few months.
