I wrote this article to suggest a way to replace the election of political leaders using political parities and replace it by the election of community leaders on personal merit.
I received 4 votes agreeing to the suggestion and 3 votes disagreeing with it.
I was surprised to see a high proportion of disagreement. I had expected to see more people supporting the new approach, as it addresses the "political corruption" that is prevalent in many countries.
I guess that the people who disagree have a vested interest, as they are connected to the political parties.
Why are there so few people who agree with it. I guess most people are apathetic or negative and will not support an suggestion unless they have a personal stake.
I hope that more people will come forward and support an idea, even if they do not have a personal stake. We need more positive forces to effect change and deal with the bad practices in our society.
