Gionni’s comment from earlier in this post was also tied to Politicians. I specifically just want to recall the part that called out the tendency for people in these roles to “get enamored with the prestige and power OF those positions that the[y] are pulled away from the core purpose of those positions, service to the community […]“
And this is one where I both agree and (shockingly) have no comment because I try not to associate with this world at all if it can be helped.
Believe it or not, I used to be a student senator a long time ago back in college. I strongly considered a career path in politics and I quickly developed a distaste for it (the process, the people, the relationships, etc.).
I will just say that Gionni’s comment wasn’t that far off base from my brief stint in that world, and doesn’t seem to be too far off from the real thing, either.
