“The price of greatness is responsibility.”
Do we expect too much from our public figures? Plan your response, and then write an essay… essay- We always tend to expect a lot from basically everything in our lives this also includes our leaders the people we select to represent us on both the national and the global stage. But do we always have realistic expectations of them ? or do we expect progress to come hand in hand with the selection of a political leader . This was illustrated in the last recession in 2009
The year 2009 is infamous in wall street because of the major stock dumping with took place weeks before the recession with led to the fall of stocks. This led to massive socio-economic problems with many people losing their jobs and eventual going bankrupt with no source of income, this put a massive pressure on the Obama government , to “fix” this and it was “their” fault , but the government had no part in it but still was working as hard as possible to lessen the blow the recession had on the lives of ordinary joes. The government is not responsible for Everything that happens in a country and therefore it is wrong of us to expect them to fix something they did not cause
During the first world war , Winston Churchill the greatest war leader ever know was the lord of admilarity , in charge of all the naval operations of the united kingdom. Trench warfare was a completely new thing which came to light in the first world war , which eventually led the war to a stalemate in which the troops of various countries just waited in the trenches for the enemy troops to come to them . Winston Churchill came up with an idea which could finally lead the united kingdom to its victory and put an end to the stalemate , this was to move half the British navy through the heavily guarded coast of Gallipoli and move to rear end of the German trenches but this did not work out the way it was supposed to with thousands of people losing their lives and the loss of many British ships , after this failure the people lost hope in Churchill and eventually ostracised him from the British government and politics . This played a cardinal role in this life
Winston Churchill came out again during the second world war and convinced the people that they risks are what win wars and he was the right leader for them , he came into power and led Britain through one of its darkest times and ultimately came out victorious in the war. Churchill lived up to his expectations but could not do the same 30 years before that when he was under immense pressure from the people to end the war once and for all. We need to expect realistically and not be whimsical about what a nation needs. Political leaders have a bad image in society as being cheats liars and thieves but this is just a perception of some of them not all.
A country cannot become great in a day , it took 200 years for india to get its freedom, it took the united states more than 200 years and dedicated lawmakers and politicians to become a global superpower . As kennedy once said “ ask not what a country can do for you but what you can do for your country “ is true in this scenario as well, in which we need to have realistic goals and a whole country and play a defining role in reaching that goal, by working together and not just putting our hope on 600 people to run a country of one billion people.
