We think in stories, but stories are summaries. The truth is far more complicated. Most politics is a Game of Thrones driven by these summaries. Leaders, parties, ethnicities countries, religions, ideologies and various other groups float above and dip into reality. Reality is made up of relationships. Complex, juicy, emotional, connections between real people who don't know everything there is to know about each other. Relationships which discover. Relationships which change, grow, break, renew, linger, inspire, depress and create the meaning that makes life worth living.
We shouldn't look to leaders to see what type of world we want.
We should grow relationships within the type of world we have.
