Darling and Delicious, the twin baby prophets of Sarhara and her husband the prophet Johnny Oops, had a secret that they shared. Although they were only three months old, because they had genius genes, they had the minds of grown up women, and they regularly argued over politics telepathically. The trouble is that Darling was a republican, and Delicious was a democrat. They argued incessantly over conservative verses liberal points of view. Please keep in mind that their views were not those of normally mature women, but these genius young ladies were determined to solve the major political problems of the United States.

Darling: “We have got to do something about our long term deficit. We have got to balance the budget. Spending is going wild.

Delicious: That’s your fault. You republicans are supposed to be the ones who control the budget and are tough on spending.

Darling: We can’t help it. This war is costing a fortune

Delicious: Who started the war to begin with? I told you it’s your fault.

Darling: Protecting our people from terrorism is more important than balancing the budget.

Delicious: Now your talking like a democrat. We have to spend to protect our people. They are entitled. That’s what’s important.

Darling: It’s your damn entitlements that got us in trouble in the first place. Now see what you’ve done.

Delicious: We are going to have to cut back on foreign spending and the war to save the dollar and protect our economy.

Darling: Now look at who is talking about protectionism. I thought you are supposed to protect us against other countries, not ourselves.

Delicious: That’s not the kind of free market thinking we need. The whole world wants to be our trading partner.

Darling: Then why don’t they trade with us fairly?

Delicious: What do you want – a perfect world?

Darling: This whole discussion strikes me as a classic case of role reversal. What ever are we going to do?

Delicious: We may have to form a third party.

Darling: That would be impossible. We don’t agree on anything.

Delicious. That’s perfect, then we will fit right into the political landscape of the United States.

Darling: I guess when our forefathers fought for individual freedom they did mean it literally.

Delicious: That’s what so precious about our democracy, Darling. Let’s never forget it.

Darling: For once I agree with you, Delicious, but don’t let anyone know. They will start to think we republicans are becoming too liberal, too democratic, and God forbid, too weak.

Darling: As long as we both agree that it’s America first, I am happy to keep your secret.

Delicious: That’s okay, that’s a secret you can tell everyone about.

Darling: I think we both should tell everyone it’s America first as soon as we find our voices, and learn how to speak. This growing up thing can be hell. Thank goodness that in our case it is happening quicker than for most.

Ways to Positively Impact Other People – Politics and Social Activism

Ways to Positively Impact Other People – Politics and Social Activism

Another contribution that can outlive you is your role in politics and social activism. Leadership is needed in our world now as never before.

Gandhi became immortal through guiding India to freedom from British rule.

Churchill became immortal for inspiring the British people to courage during World War II.

Martin Luther King made his name in the non-violent fight for civil rights.

What causes will you champion? It is no longer enough for us to leave the mantel of leadership in our societies to others.

People like Al Gore have shown that we can sometimes have great influence by merely calling people’s attention to a problem in need of solution.

Nelson Mandela showed us moral courage in the creation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Whether your leadership role is formal or informal, we are all called to politics in one form or another, for politics determines the policies by which our nations and our world will be led. And our participation or apathy will outlive us in determining what kind of a world we leave behind for our children.

Living a life that will outlive you means that you must leave something behind that will have some form of societal impact.

It means doing something, creating something, and sharing something that inspires, enables, liberates, and stimulates other people to move to a better place.

This can be done on a small or large scale. It can impact the lives of a few people or the lives of millions, if not billions, of people. It may influence a family, a community, a company, a country, or the world.

You can choose to do it through sharing profound knowledge and philosophy, through generating works of art, through creating organizations of enduring value, or through political activity and the championing of worthy causes.

Each will outlive you. Each can change history, whether for a few people or for many.
