Teleprompters and Ghost Writers

It is my experience that most of us are total morons when it comes to extemporaneous, impromptu speaking. Only a minority compose with any eloquence and fewer still combine eloquence with genuine wisdom. We accept the fact that leaders employ ghost writers. Yet we are hypnotized by the ludicrous notion that one lone person can solve a nation’s problems or the world’s problems. And we expect said person to speak such wise eloquence without aid of a teleprompter. I suspect that a vast majority of the world’s population are errant fools. When whenever we admire a public figure for leadership qualities we admire a leader of dunces. One the bright side of all this is the consolation that few tears need be shed for a tragic species on the brink of extinction.
