The politics of passion – passion of politics
The nice folks at TED bring a TEDtalk of Majora Carter: the passion and indignation of this young woman is where politics should have its root. She’s great on slogans too: “Green is the new black”. Make sure you don’t miss the part where she talks about her conversation with Al Gore!
Then again, once elected, politicians should make sure that ratio takes over and think about their strategies for change. This evening, it seems that the mayor of my hometown, Antwerp, has proven that he did exactly that: after many, many years, he has been instrumental in finally delivering a defeat to the extreme right-wing Vlaams Belang… Thanks, Patrick!
