It’s not Donald Trump’s slogans that we need to worry about. We’re living in a climate reminiscent of Peter Seller’s timeless masterpiece Being There in which a political leader rises to fame by repeating advertising slogans he’s picked up watching television.
The crisis of Western democracies, which we have previously analysed in these pages, can in many ways be blamed on inadequate leadership. We are afflicted by figures that are incapable of leading or providing the kind of vision and sense of history that might produce enlightened and effective decisions. We would like to examine the more scientific aspects of the phenomenon, so that alongside our perception and frustrations, we may also identify possible solutions to the political and cultural stalemate of the last decade.
