The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Non politicians can be very interesting national leaders since they have non ideological minds, so they are by definition non partisan ones. This
means to have several times more brain plasticity to accept new ideas and to deal with any type of people.
They prefer practical solutions of very complicate problems, than intricate theoretical schemes, so they can easily taste new methods or approaches if
it is necessary. In that sense they are ideal leaders to coordinate very diverse teams to move on extremely difficult projects, as well as from
They are skilled to put together antagonist parts to work for common goals, and to remain open to all the possibilities so they can refine plans under
changing conditions and succeed breaking old paradigms.
History has showed that in general these kind of leaders that suddenly arrived to power without really coming from the conventional political
background in many cases are great Leaders in time of necessary change, they have the ability to find and walk through paths that a conventional
politician probably never would take, since also he never should be able to see.
Figures like Catherine the 2nd of Russia, Queen Victoria of England, Sun Yat-sen , Nelson Mandela, Lecht Walesa, Vaclav Havel, Corazon Aquino,
Violeta Chamorro, and even George Washington, Napoleon Bonaparte, Simon Bolivar or the Pope John XXIII are counted among these strange enigmatic
leaders that became head of government or State of incredible unexpected success with almost none previous political expertise.
In the case of America we still remember General Dwight Eisenhower who had a terrific performance as Commander in Chief of all allies troops in Europe
during World War II and suddenly became Republican Nominee and President in 1953.
His Presidency marked a time of great development of civil works along the country, his are the most impressive National Highways ever built, the
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the establishment of strong science education via the National Defense Education Act, and
encouraged peaceful use of nuclear power via amendments to the Atomic Energy Act.
It was under his command that it was founded the American Space program and the NASA, as well as the introduction of the civil rights agenda in public
Internationally he gained respect for the way he was able to settle down Korea war and also actively help to conclude through diplomatic means the
Suez canal war. His agenda for middle east was brilliant, without involving the country actively in Israel issues he was able to get the confidence
and friendship of many Arab nations in a determinant moment of the cold war. On the domestic front, he covertly opposed Joseph McCarthy and
contributed to the end of McCarthyism by openly invoking executive privilege
United States never before or even after have had so extraordinary nice macroeconomic indicators and strongest leadership position in the world than
the ones that correspond to the two Eisenhower terms ( 1954-1961), it was a time of economic and social progress still remembered with Nostalgia by
the few elders that are still alive and recall it.
In his January 17, 1961 farewell address to the nation, Eisenhower expressed his concerns about the dangers of massive military spending, particularly
deficit spending and government contracts to private military manufacturers, and coined the term "military–industrial complex'. If subsequent
administrations would observed and respected his recommendations probably our economy might be not absolutely broken under the weight of many
basically useless wars.
The thread is open to discuss the benefits of to have non Political figures leading key periods of History and help nations to move on and create a
new momentum toward full development.
