Barack Obama profile

Sunday, 07 December 2008

Barack Obama profileEver since the war for independence was over, there has been a need in a new image for the new America to see all over the world. It is now vital for the USA to stop demonstrating those jaws of an imperialistic demon but start showing everyone the real smile of the real democracy, especially after the country's image has been declining heavily for some time. One cannot but recall a joke about a rat that needed to change its image-maker. Well now one can send out congratulations to the United States. Barack Obama, a newly elected 44th president of the United States of America is capable of creating such image for the country, an image that none of those image-makers such as John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Che Gevara, Mahatma Gandhi and Mao, could dream about.

Just the presence of Obama's in the presidential chair shoos all of the possible racist accusations towards the USA away and proves the old but still relevant thesis of the state of the equal (and outstanding) opportunities. There certainly was a reason behind Obama's speech after he has been elected: «If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer». To demonstrate the democracy with a human face Obama shouldn't even do anything extraordinary. The only thing he needs to do is be in the Oval cabinet.

And this doesn't mean that Obama is just a puppet in the presidential chair. It is said that he is a true democrat and his democratic views are spreading around and take every single aspect of the American (And not only American) life under control. Obama has been talking a lot of negative things about his distrust to those politics that are filled with the righteous anger when speaking about their opponents and who totally believe in the right of their points of view, their party's position. Obama is defending the right of a woman to perform an abortion operation; he talks about the alternative source of fuel and energy. Obama proposes an improvement in the immigrants' policies for the immigrants themselves. He also was saying that there is no need in the increase in taxes (Just this little statement could have brought him lots of the voters to his side).

But that's not all there is about Barack Obama. It is said that Barack wants to keep the Cuban embargo (Even though the UN has stated that this embargo was illegal), he thinks that the Latin America is now lost by the USA (What the hell is that supposed to mean?), he now supports the phone calls' run-throughs (There were times when he thought of the idea as a complete violation of the freedom of speech) and his popular view on taxes isn't as simple as it seems. Turns out Barack was talking about the decrease on the corporate tax.

This is where we get quiet a controversial image of the new president of the United States of America. From one point of view Barack is the true democrat that is capable of turning the failing «cruiser» around and making a miracle just like Roosevelt did but on the other hand this is an unprincipled politic that acts just like a weathercock and changes his mind with any blow of the wind. Which one of the images is the true one - it is hard to predict. Predicting what the 44th president Barack Obama would be like is fairly impossible. Obama does not possess enough experience and he hasn't been known much for his politics, he had never demonstrated any of his practical moves. Everything there is to know about the man called Barack Obama is the things that he says. And you cannot really treat the words of a politician as the law, especially when these words are the words of the presidential race speeches. Do not trust the politicians.

When talking about Obama phenomenon and the way he became a president out of a senator nobody has ever heard about you shouldn't really forget about one of his distinctive features. That is his charisma. Obama possesses the charisma of the enormous strengths. (Charisma is a certain quality of an individual personality, by virtue of which s/he is set apart from ordinary people and treated as endowed with supernatural, superhuman, or at least specifically exceptional powers or qualities. These are such as are not accessible to the ordinary person, but are regarded as of divine origin or as exemplary, and on the basis of them the individual concerned is treated as a leader' (M. Weber))

Take a look at the man's smile, even the famous smile by John F. Kennedy wasn't as attractive and appealing as Obama's is. This may be because of his smile that so many of the political scientists compare Barack with Kennedy (John F. Kennedy was also one of those appealing and charismatic presidents). But the smile is not everything that Obama has up his sleeve. His speeches can turn the coldest crowd on. If that's not enough Obama is capable of charming the politicians, businessmen and eve journalist - those people who because of their professions are prepared to deal with everything with that bit of skepticism and distrust. But even those people are starting to get infected with the «Obamamania».

The same charisma as Barack Obama possesses is what such leaders as Buddha, Moses, Christ, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, John Kennedy possessed. However the charisma of the same power was what Adolf Hitler, Mussolini, Vladimir Lenin, and Trotsky, Mao and Genghis Khan had. What path will Obama go is a tricky question.

The impression that Barack Obama has made on those who had listened to his speeches through the election campaign is the same as the one that Adolf Hitler had on those people in 1933 who had listened to him. There is the same feeling of security and the idea that one will go everywhere where the man will call him to the same positive-only intussusceptions of the words that the orator speaks. There is the same charisma of the spokesman that no one can actually understand but the one which captures one's mind forever from the first glance and the first words the man pronounces. And even more important is the fact that after the speech is over and one reads through the text of the speech one cannot see anything concrete in it. The phrases are vague and the core is built around the charisma of the man, not on the ideas of him.

And this is to my mind where it gets scary because the charisma guys do not appear just like that. Those guys usually appear at the specific time in history (One can say at the moment of a high need of this type of a leader). The charisma guys are always bringing changes, perestroika and even more often the new world order.

What remains the question is which path Mr. Barack Obama will choose. Is it Mahatma Gandhi's or Adolf Hitler's path? Is it Buddha's or Trotsky's path? We shall get to know pretty soon.
