Nothing grows for the average Joe except his fear that he is losing his country. The game, he’s come to think, is rigged against him in a corrupt casino where only the privileged are allowed to win.
And on the bright screens of celebrity and success, they see the very same impotent politicians who promised to save them. They’ve become rock stars despite never having a hit.
In relief comes Dr. Ben Carson, whose life is a testament to humility and selfless service. He is the very opposite of the vainglorious politician whose re-election is his only accomplishment. Unlike a Donald Trump, his success comes from serving others, not from taking from them.
The greatest mass movements in history have been built, not on vaporous political promises, but on the twin pillars of humility and selfless service. Treat your neighbor as yourself. Do unto others what you would have them do unto you. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.”
