They say we get the government we deserve, not the government we need. Looking round the world right now we seem to have an infection of either populist or totalitarian leaders most of whom we would not dream of employing even in the lowliest of capacities.
I list just a few of the candidates for my prize of the lousiest world leaders, they are:
- President Trump of the United States.
- President Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe.
- President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil.
- President Putin of Russia.
- Supreme leader of Iran Ali Khamenei.
- President Assad of Syria
- President Xi of China
- Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia.
- President Erdogan of Turkey
10.Deputy Prime Minister of Italy Matteo Salvini.
This is by no means an exhaustive list. But here are some of valid the descriptions that apply. You decide which matches who best:
Racist, Murderer, Assassin, Locking away of hundreds of thousands of citizens in concentration camps/corrective gulags, Arbitrary locking up of those you don’t like, Locking out desperate refugees, Mass murder of civilians, Corruption on a massive scale, Liar, Burner of the world’s greatest asset, Clown, etc., etc..
What do these correlations mean? Do millions really want to be governed by these assorted megalomaniacs?
If the answer is yes, then Apocalypse can’t be far away.
