Because Trump is the forerunner of a new era of government



Racist, misogynist and anti-Semitic, these are just some of the terms that have been given in the last year to the American president Donald Trump. And while many are doing their best to get Trump out of the limelight in some way, Oprah Winfrey is now being proposed as an alternative for 2020. "I thought: damn, I do not have the experience, I do not know enough", recently declared to Bloomberg TV, "And now [referring to the elections] I'm thinking, Oh".







While the mainstream media continually feeds anyone, with all sorts of epithets with which we should call President Trump, I will highlight what I believe is missing from most people. The fact that many experts, politicians and opinion leaders continually attack him, shows something about the Trump phenomenon that the public, the government and the media can not recognize, or can not accept.
In my opinion, that something has to do with a fundamental change, which I foresee will be realized very soon, in the way we make everything work on the planet. The future will no longer be what we already know. And Trump, who is aware of it or not, is the forerunner of that change.
How did we get to this point?
In the past, the way of governing was much clearer. The kings ran every detail of their countries and populations. Freedom of expression was certainly not as developed as it is today, the punishments were terrifying and not many people were able to improve things, even if they wanted it. But a good king took care of his citizens and wanted his kingdom flourishing and prospering.
The kings, however, were surrounded by many helpers. Their task was to support the king's interests by offering advice on strategy, sustaining the kingdom, communicating with the public, and so on. But over time, these helpers realized they had great power and wanted to keep it at all costs, and so the first politicians were born, doubtful characters who flattered the king, capable of influencing the kingdom, gossiping, plotting and conspiring ; all aimed at a single purpose: to maintain their positions of power.
So it went on for about 200 years. Today those same politicians are called "elected officials", the method by which they can preserve their power is called "democracy" and what they devote most of their time, energy and resources is being elected in the next term. Sometimes, if we are lucky, this also satisfies public interests.
Is not it time to improve this system? I argue that the time has come and the change is already starting to take shape.
Because Trump is extravagant
In a world characterized at the same time by increased selfishness and inextricable interdependence, in a hyper-connected world where we have the technology to create abundance for everyone yet we are getting closer to World War III, human society is groping in the dark to find a new model with which to organize.
So who is Mr. Trump in this process? Beyond the showman skills he has mastered over the years, Trump is driven by a businessman's DNA. He represents the quintessence of the entrepreneurial spirit that has nothing to do with the political world as we know it. And that you see it as good or bad, racist or patriot, is totally irrelevant when compared to such a quality.
It is precisely because of this entrepreneurial quality that I see his rise to power as the precursor of a much larger change in the way of governing. Therefore it is natural that it does not fit into any of the parameters in which the world is trying to frame it. It is not politically correct. He does not speak or write like a diplomat. It is direct, vulgar and not in line with the "politics" we are used to.
Trump is a builder who challenges himself by trying to make things flourish and flourish. And even when he fell into bankruptcy he managed to get up and beat new records. And it is precisely this commercial pragmatism that I would like to emphasize about Trump.
We have reached a point where the world is saturated with politicians who use, like passwords for power, empty words and so-called values. Trump's election indicates that the disdain for the beautiful discourses on ideologies, and the desire for a pragmatic approach to solving problems, has been recognized within the masses.
The leaders of the future
What the world needs today in positions of power are results-oriented pragmatic men, entrepreneurs, builders, innovators and optimizers. Trump, in my opinion, is only the first bird of change. I could also easily see people like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos occupying this role. The point is that we have to reinvent our politics, starting with replacing politicians with people infected by the "bug" of entrepreneurship.
However, there is an important trick: the leaders of the new world must feel as if their country were their business, the success of the country is their success and the public piggy bank is their piggy bank.
This is where money plays a central role. It allows us to do what otherwise is almost impossible to do: measure. When I say money, I do not mean the financial sector led by Wall Street, which is a bubble occupied by a different type of political character: one who can play with numbers to inflate his bank account, without actually creating anything in the real world. Much of the financial world is a facade that will become obsolete in the future, but this is far from an argument.
Economics is a reflection of human relations and we need to rediscover the solid foundation on how people relate to each other in society: what each of us gives to society and what it receives in return. Money is currently our most accurate tool for measuring these relationships; it can also help us to focus on pure merit and deflate ideological bubbles that do not contribute to our social progress.
If the United States and Russia, for example, negotiated their problems for the sole purpose of obtaining the best deal for both countries, they would come to clear and practical conclusions about how they can best collaborate, instead of playing power games. , which are important for politicians, but useless for real businessmen.
This pragmatic approach between person and person, country and country, will be a new starting point to face a world that has become globally interdependent, in a century destined to see enormous changes.
