You should definitely have something to be excited about, like a
kid who's excited about going to Disney world. If you don't have
that reason to be excited when you wake up every day, then
you'll most likely be living a life that's random and
meaningless. You need to be actively involved in creation, or

Motivation is made up of many things. It is a series of steps.
You want to do something, so you want the most effective and
efficient way possible for accomplishing your goal, a way that

is important, you also have to be organized and

organisms are born with certain psychological needs and that a negative
state of tension is created when these needs are not satisfied. When a
need is satisfied, drive is reduced and the organism returns to a state of
homeostasis and relaxation. According to the theory, drive tends to
increase over time and operates on a feedback control system, much like a

is a leadership philosophy in which the main goal
of the leader is to serve. A Servant Leader shares power, puts the needs
of the employees first and helps people develop and perform as highly as
possible. Servant leadership inverts the norm, which puts the customer

serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people.
Situational Leadership Theory
states that there is no single "best"
style of leadership. Effective leadership is task-relevant, and the most
successful leaders are those who adapt their leadership style to the
performance readiness (ability and willingness) of the individual or group
they are attempting to lead or influence. Effective leadership varies, not
only with the person or group that is being influenced, but it also
depends on the task, job, or function that needs to be accomplished.
is defined as integrated patterns of personal
characteristics that reflect a range of individual differences and foster
consistent leader effectiveness across a variety of group and
is a part of a style of leadership that
focuses on supervision, organization, and performance; it is an integral
part of the Full Range Leadership Model. Transactional leadership is a
style of leadership in which leaders promote compliance by followers
through both rewards and punishments. Through a rewards and punishments
system, transactional leaders are able to keep followers motivated for the
short-term. Unlike transformational leaders, those using the transactional
approach are not looking to change the future, they look to keep things
the same. Leaders using transactional leadership as a model pay attention
to followers' work in order to find faults and deviations.
Task-Oriented and Relationship-Oriented Leadership
defined by Forsyth as "a descriptive model of leadership which maintains
that most leadership behaviors can be classified as performance
or relationship maintenance." Task-oriented (or task-focused)
leadership is a behavioral approach in which the leader focuses on the
tasks that need to be performed in order to meet certain goals, or to
achieve a certain performance
relationship-focused) leadership is a behavioral approach in which the
leader focuses on the satisfaction, motivation and the general well-being
of the team members.
is a management practice which is focused on
leadership skills across functional and organizational boundaries.
is a theory of leadership where a leader
works with teams to identify needed change, creating a vision to guide the
change through inspiration, and executing the change in tandem with
committed members of a group.
leadership serves to enhance the motivation, morale, and job performance
of followers through a variety of mechanisms; these include connecting the
follower's sense of
and self to a project and to the
identity of the
organization; being a role model for followers in order to inspire them
and to raise their interest in the project; challenging
greater ownership for their work, and understanding the strengths and
weaknesses of followers, allowing the leader to align followers with tasks
that enhance their performance.
is someone who provides
, direction and leadership to a group
of other individuals (the team) for the purpose of achieving a key result
or group of aligned results. The team leader reports to a
(overseeing several teams). The team
leader monitors the quantitative and qualitative result that is to be
achieved. The leader often works within the team, as a member, carrying
out the same roles but with the additional 'leader'
- as opposed to
higher level management who often have a separate job role altogether. In
order for a team to function successfully, the team leader must also
motivate the team to "use their knowledge and
to achieve the
." When a team leader
motivates a team
, group members can function in a
goal oriented manner. A "team leader" is also someone who has the
capability to drive performance within a group of people. Team leaders
utilize their expertise, their peers, influence, and/or creativeness to
formulate an effective team. Scouller (2011) defined the purpose of a
leader (including a team leader) as follows: "The purpose of a leader is
to make sure there is leadership … to ensure that all four dimensions of
leadership are [being addressed].” The four dimensions being: (1) a
shared, motivating team purpose or vision or goal (2) action, progress and
results (3) collective unity
or team spirit (4) attention to individuals. Leaders also contribute by
leading through example
Aligned with listening skills, team leaders are responsible for developing
intervention techniques to improve overall team production. Shuffler

To be a Good Leader you don't need to be Abusive
disrespectful or insensitive, and there is no need to be an asshole or a
in order to get your
point across. But you do need to be tuff, strong, energetic and be able
to motivate people, coach people and guide people. And some methods work
better than others. Everyone is a little different, every perspective can
be a little different, every situation can be different, and things are
relative. Some jobs are very demanding and stressful, and having a
position of authority can also be stressful and demanding, which could
cause a person to snap and lose control

they are over worked

A leader is not a position,

Leading people through the gates of hell is not leading
you are only misleading. Good leadership is measured by how well you
inform your followers so that they are totally aware that they are also
responsible for the success of the desired goals, and that the followers
must fully understand the implications of these goals. So one of these
responsibilities is making sure that you have a good plan and not just a
good leader. You can't be dependent on leadership, it's just illogical for
a human to be dependent on anything.
So what's more important, Leadership
This is not to say that
leadership is not important or that leadership is not effective,
because It got us this far. But being dependent on leaders is
not sustainable. Leadership is a sign of weakness and ignorance,
which are two things you can't have if you plan to survive and
thrive as a species. So as a leader, if you are not taking the
necessary steps to rid your organization of ignorance and
dependency, you are just ignoring the fact that failure and
decay are imminent. Then most likely you are not a leader, you
are most likely to be a very ignorant criminal and a liar.

You Are a Leader
You have an open mind and seek out other people's opinions.
If people are drawn to you because you are open to others
You offer advice and counsel. If you find yourself advising
your colleagues, and your friends are asking you to counsel
them--if people seem to seek out and value what you say--then
your empathy is strong and your perspective has real-world
usefulness to those around you. If you often help those around
you navigate their rough patches.
People count on you. If people rely on you, it follows that
they trust you to follow through and deliver on your promises.
If you hold yourself accountable and demonstrate the kind of
day-in, day-out responsibility that leads others to trust you.
You're a good listener and people confide in you. Being able
to listen to others, having people speak to you frankly without
worrying about who you'll tell or how you might use that
knowledge against them, are signs of strong leadership--not to
mention of being a nice person. If you understand that listening
is more important than speaking, and if people know they can
confide in you.
Others follow your example. The most powerful form of
leadership isn't persuasion or argument or force, but example.
Whether times are good or bad, people notice who's present,
who's effective, who's working hard without distraction. When
that person is you, others naturally follow you--and you are a
You insist on excellence. As Aristotle said, we are what we
repeatedly do, and therefore excellence is not an act but a
habit. When you are in the habit of standing up for excellence
and you hold yourself and those around you responsible for
quality, you are telling others that you act rather than talk,
show rather than say, deliver rather than promise. If you are
not making excuses or blaming others but holding up the standard
of excellence and quality.
You have a positive attitude. Positive, optimistic people
make people around them happy. A positive outlook doesn't blind
you to problems or issues but allows you to seek out something
good in almost every situation and to know that eventually
things will be all right. It's the kind of spirit that keeps
people motivated and spreads optimism, and it means you are a
You treat people with respect. Knowledge may give you power,
being smart may give you an advantage, but when you give respect
you will always receive respect in return. If you look for the
good in everyone you meet and respect them for who they are,
it's likely that they hold you in high esteem and that you are a
You genuinely care about others. If you spend time
supporting, guiding and sharing your knowledge with those around
you, giving them the opportunity to achieve success, and if you
care about their well-being and do all you can to help them
attain their own success.
You are confident and passionate. Most people are always
watching each other, looking for cues about how to behave. Being
confident means moving with assurance, being passionate about
what you believe and refusing to let anything get in your way.
If you work consistently toward a cause with vision and
confidence, you are a leader.

was a dynasty of seven Roman Emperors who ruled
over the Roman Empire from AD 96 to 192. These Emperors are Nerva, Trajan,
Hadrian, Antoninus Pius, Lucius Verus, Marcus Aurelius, and Commodus. The
first five of them (excluding Lucius Verus) are commonly known as the
"Five Good Emperors". The first five of the six successions within this
dynasty were notable in that the reigning Emperor adopted the candidate of
his choice to be his successor. Under Roman law, an adoption established a
bond legally as strong as that of kinship. Because of this, all but the
first and last of the Nerva–Antonine emperors are called Adoptive
Emperors. The importance of official adoption in Roman society has often
been considered as a conscious repudiation of the principle of dynastic
inheritance and has been deemed one of the factors of the period's
prosperity. However, this was not a new practice. It was common for
patrician families to adopt, and Roman emperors had adopted heirs in the
past: the Emperor Augustus had adopted Tiberius and the Emperor Claudius
had adopted Nero. Julius Caesar, dictator perpetuo and considered to be
instrumental in the transition from Republic to Empire, adopted Gaius
Octavius, who would become Augustus, Rome's first emperor. Moreover, there
was a family connection as Trajan adopted his first cousin once removed
and great-nephew by marriage Hadrian, and Hadrian made his half-nephew by
marriage and heir Antoninus Pius adopt both Hadrian's second cousin three
times removed and half-great-nephew by marriage Marcus Aurelius, also
Antoninus' nephew by marriage, and the son of his original planned
successor, Lucius Verus. The naming by Marcus Aurelius of his son Commodus
was considered to be an unfortunate choice and the beginning of the
Empire's decline. With Commodus' murder in 192, the Nerva–Antonine dynasty
came to an end; it was followed by a period of turbulence known as the

. - I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s
not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to
help everyone - if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white. We all
want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by
each other’s happiness - not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate
and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the
good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be
free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s
souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into
misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves
in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has
made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and
feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than
cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life
will be violent and all will be lost….The aeroplane and the radio have
brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out
for the goodness in men - cries out for universal brotherhood - for the
unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the
world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children - victims
of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those
who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is
but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human
progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they
took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die,
liberty will never perish. …..Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes -
men who despise you - enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you
what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you -
treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to
these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love
of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the
unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for
liberty! In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God
is within man” - not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you!
You, the people have the power - the power to create machines. The power
to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life
free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then - in the
name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight
for a new world - a decent world that will give men a chance to work -
that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of
these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not
fulfill that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they
enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfill that promise! Let us fight
to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with
greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a
world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness.
Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite! Hannah, can you hear
me? Wherever you are, look up Hannah. The clouds are lifting! The sun is
breaking through! We are coming out of the darkness into the light. We are
coming into a new world - a kindlier world, where men will rise above
their hate, their greed and their brutality. Look up, Hannah! The soul of
man has been given wings and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying
into the rainbow - into the light
, into the future, the glorious future that belongs to you, to
me, and to all of us. Look up, Hannah... look up!"

His Holiness Pope Francis: Why the only future worth building includes
(video and interactive text - Filmed Apr
, 17:52) -
Good evening – or, good morning, I am not sure what
it is there. Regardless of the hour, I am thrilled to be
participating in your conference. I very much like its title – "The Future
You" – because, while looking at tomorrow, it invites us to open a
dialogue today, to look at the future through a "you." "The Future You:"
the future is made of yous, it is made of encounters, because life flows
through our relations with others
Quite a few years of life have strengthened my conviction that each and
everyone's existence is deeply tied to that of others: life is not time
merely passing by, life is about interactions. As I meet, or lend an
ear to those who are sick, to the
terrible hardships in search of a brighter future, to prison inmates who
carry a hell of pain inside their hearts, and to those, many of them
young, who cannot find a
, I often find myself wondering: "Why
them and not me
?" I, myself, was born in a family of migrants; my
father, my grandparents, like many other Italians, left for Argentina and
met the fate of those who are left with nothing. I could have very well
ended up among today's "discarded" people. And that's why I always ask
myself, deep in my heart: "Why them and not me?" First and foremost, I
would love it if this meeting could help to remind us that we all need
each other, none of us is an
, an autonomous and independent "I," separated from the other,
and we can only build the future by standing together, including everyone.
We don’t think about it often, but
everything is connected
and we need to restore our connections to a healthy state. Even the
in my heart against my brother or my sister, the open wound that was never
cured, the offense that was never
, the rancor that is only going to hurt me, are all instances
of a fight that I carry within me, a flare deep in my heart that needs to
be extinguished before it goes up in flames, leaving only ashes behind.
Many of us, nowadays, seem to believe that a happy future is something
impossible to achieve. While such concerns must be taken very seriously,
they are not invincible. They can be overcome when we don't lock our door
to the outside world. Happiness
can only be discovered as a gift of harmony
between the whole and each single component. Even
– and you know it better than I do – points to an
understanding of reality as a place where every element connects and
interacts with everything else. And this brings me to my second
message. How wonderful would it be if the growth of
would come along with more equality and
social inclusion. How wonderful would it be, while we discover faraway
planets, to rediscover the needs of the brothers and sisters orbiting
around us. How wonderful would it be if solidarity, this beautiful and, at
times, inconvenient word, were not simply reduced to
, and became, instead, the
default attitude in political, economic and scientific choices, as well as
in the relationships
peoples and countries. Only by educating
to a true solidarity will we be able to overcome the "culture
," which doesn't concern only food and goods but, first and
foremost, the people who are cast aside by our
even realizing it, are now putting products at their core, instead of
term that many wish to erase from the dictionary. Solidarity, however, is
not an automatic mechanism. It cannot be
programmed or controlled
. It is a free response born from the heart of
each and everyone. Yes, a free response
When one realizes that life, even in the middle of so many
, is a gift, that
is the source and
the meaning of life
, how can they
withhold their urge to do good to another fellow being? In order to do
good, we need memory
we need courage and we need creativity
I know that TED gathers many creative minds. Yes, love does require a
creative, concrete and ingenious attitude. Good intentions and
conventional formulas, so often used to appease our conscience, are not
enough. Let us help each other
all together, to remember that the other is not a statistic or a number.
The other has a face. The "you" is always a real presence, a person to
take care of. There is a parable Jesus told to help us understand the
difference between those who'd rather not be bothered and those who take
care of the other. I am sure you have heard it before. It is the Parable
of the Good Samaritan
. When Jesus was
asked: "Who is my neighbor?" - namely, "Who
should I take care of
?" - he told this story, the story of a man who
had been assaulted, robbed, beaten and abandoned along a dirt road. Upon
seeing him, a priest and a Levite, two very influential people of the
time, walked past him without stopping to help. After a while, a
Samaritan, a very much despised ethnicity at the time, walked by. Seeing
the injured man lying on the ground, he did not ignore him as if he
weren't even there. Instead, he felt compassion for this man, which
compelled him to act in a very concrete manner. He poured oil and wine on
the wounds of the helpless man, brought him to a hostel and paid out of
his pocket for him to be assisted. The story of the Good Samaritan is
the story of today’s humanity
. People's paths
are riddled with suffering, as everything is centered
, and things, instead of people. And often there is this
habit, by people who call themselves "respectable," of not taking care of
the others, thus leaving behind thousands
human beings, or entire populations, on the side of the road. Fortunately,
there are also those who are creating a new world by taking care of the
other, even out of their own pockets. Mother Teresa actually said: "One
cannot love, unless it is at their own expense." We have so much to do,
and we must do it together. But how can we do that with all the evil we
breathe every day? Thank God, no system can nullify our desire to open up
to the good, to
and to our capacity to react
, all of which
stem from deep within our hearts. Now you might tell me, "Sure, these are
beautiful words, but I am not the Good Samaritan, nor Mother Teresa of
Calcutta." On the contrary: we are precious, each and every one of us.
Each and every one of us is irreplaceable in the eyes of God. Through the
darkness of today's conflicts, each and every one of us can become a
bright candle, a reminder that light will overcome darkness, and never the
other way around. To Christians, the future does have a name, and its
name is Hope
. Feeling hopeful does
not mean to be optimistically naïve and ignore the tragedy humanity is
facing. Hope is the virtue of a heart that doesn't lock itself into
darkness, that doesn't dwell on the
, does not simply get by in the present, but is able to see a
tomorrow. Hope is the door
that opens onto the future
. Hope is a humble,
hidden seed of life
time, will develop into a large tree. It is like some invisible yeast that
allows the whole dough to grow, that brings flavor to all aspects of life.
And it can do so much, because a tiny flicker
that feeds on hope is enough to shatter the shield of
darkness. A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that
individual can be you. And then there will be another "you," and another
"you," and it turns into an "us." And so, does hope begin when we have an
"us?" No. Hope began with one "you." When there is an "us
there begins a revolution. The third message I would like to share
today is, indeed, about revolution
revolution of tenderness
And what is tenderness? It is the love that comes close and becomes real.
It is a movement that starts from our heart and reaches the eyes, the ears
and the hands. Tenderness means to use our eyes to see the other, our ears
to hear the other, to listen to the children, the poor, those who are
afraid of the future. To listen also to the silent cry of our common home,
of our sick and polluted
. Tenderness means to use our hands and our heart to comfort the
other, to take care of those in need. Tenderness is the language of the
young children, of those who need the other. A child’s love for mom and
dad grows through their touch, their gaze, their voice, their tenderness.
I like when I hear parents
talk to their babies
, adapting to the little child, sharing the same
level of communication
. This is
tenderness: being on the same level as the other. God himself descended
into Jesus to be on our level. This is the same path the Good Samaritan
took. This is the path that Jesus himself took. He lowered himself, he
lived his entire human existence practicing the real, concrete
language of love
. Yes, tenderness
is the path of choice for the strongest, most courageous men and women.
Tenderness is not weakness; it is fortitude. It is the path of solidarity,
the path of humility. Please, allow me to say it loud and clear:
the more powerful you are
, the more
your actions will have an impact on people, the
more responsible you are
humbly. If you don’t, your power will ruin you, and you will ruin the
other. There is a saying in Argentina: "Power is like drinking gin on an
empty stomach." You feel dizzy, you get drunk, you lose your balance, and
you will end up hurting yourself and those around you, if you don’t
connect your power with humility and tenderness. Through
and concrete love, on
the other hand, power – the highest, the strongest one – becomes a
service, a force for good. The future of humankind isn't exclusively in
the hands of politicians, of great
, of big companies. Yes, they do hold an
. But the
future is, most of all, in the hands of those people who recognize the
other as a "you" and themselves as part of an "us."
We all need each other
so, please, think of me as well with tenderness, so that I can fulfill the
task I have been given for the good of the other, of each and every one,
of all of you, of all of us
Thank you. -

His Holiness Pope Francis Filmed in Vatican City First shown at TED
Countdown Global Launch,
Hello! We are living during a historic moment, marked by difficult
challenges, as we all know. The world is shaken by the crisis caused by
the COVID-19 pandemic, which highlights another global challenge: the
socio-environmental crisis. And this requires us, all of us, to face a
choice. The choice between what matters, and what doesn’t. The choice
between continuing to ignore the suffering of the poorest and to abuse our
common home, our planet, or engaging at every level to transform the way
we act. Science tells us, every day, with more precision, that urgent
action is needed -- and I am not dramatizing, this is what science says --
if we are to keep the hope of avoiding radical and catastrophic climate
change. And for this we must act now. This is a scientific fact. Our
conscience tells us that we cannot remain indifferent to the suffering of
those in need, to the growing economic inequalities and social injustices.
And that the economy itself cannot be limited to production and
distribution. It must also consider its impacts on both the environment
and on the dignity of people. We could say that the economy should be
creative in itself and in its methods, in the way it acts. Creativity.
I would like to invite you to go on a journey together. A journey of
transformation and of action. Made not so much of words, but rather of
concrete and pressing actions. I am calling it a journey because it
requires a shift, a change. From this crisis none of us must come out the
same -- we cannot come out the same: from a crisis, we never come out the
same -- and it will take time, and hard work, to overcome it. We will have
to take it one step at a time; help the weak; persuade those in doubt;
imagine new solutions; and commit to carry them out.
Our goal is
: to build, within the next decade, a world where we can meet the
needs of the present generations, including everyone, without compromising
the possibilities of future generations. I would like to invite all people
of faith, Christian or not, and all people of good will, to embark on this
journey, starting from your own faith, or if you do not have a faith, from
your own intention, from your own goodwill. Each one of us, as
individuals, or members of a group -- families, communities of faith,
businesses, associations, institutions -- can make a substantial
contribution. Five years ago I wrote the encyclical letter "Laudato
Si’," dedicated to the care of our common home. It proposes the concept of
"integral ecology," to respond together to the cry of the Earth, as well
as to the cry of the poor. Integral ecology is an invitation to an
integral vision on life, starting from the conviction that everything in
the world is connected and that, as the pandemic made sure to remind us,
we are interdependent on each other, as well as on our Mother Earth.
From such a vision stems the need to find new ways of defining progress
and measuring it, without limiting ourselves to the economic,
technological, financial and gross-product aspects, but rather, giving
central relevance to its ethical, social and educational dimensions. I
would like to propose today three courses of action. As I wrote in "Laudato
Si’," the change and the right orientation for our journey of integral
ecology require first that we all take an educational step. So, my
first suggestion is to promote, at every level, an education geared
towards the care of our common home, developing the understanding that
environmental problems are linked to human needs. We must understand this
from the beginning: environmental problems are tied to human needs. An
education based on scientific data and on an ethical approach. This is
important: both of them. I am encouraged by the fact that many young
people already show a new ecological and social awareness, and many of
them fight generously for the defense of the environment and for justice.
As a second proposal, we must focus on water and nutrition. Access to
safe and drinkable water is an essential and universal human right. It is
essential because it determines the survival of people and therefore is a
condition for the exercise of all other rights and responsibilities.
Providing adequate nutrition for all, through non-destructive farming
methods, should become the main purpose of the entire cycle of food
production and distribution. The third suggestion is about energy
transition: a gradual replacement, but without delay, of fossil fuels with
clean energy sources. We only have a few years. Scientists estimate
approximately less than 30 -- we have a few years, less than 30 -- to
drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Not only
must this transition be quick and capable of meeting present and future
energy needs, it also must be attentive to the impact on the poor, on
local populations, as well as on those who work in the energy production
sectors. One way to encourage this change is to lead businesses
towards the urgent need to commit themselves to the integral care of our
common home, excluding from investments those companies that do not meet
the parameters of integral ecology, while rewarding those that work
concretely, during this transitional phase, to put, at the center of their
activities, sustainability, social justice and the promotion of the common
good. Many organizations, Catholic and of other faiths, have already
taken on the responsibility to act in this direction. In fact, the Earth
must be worked and nursed, cultivated and protected. We cannot continue to
squeeze it like an orange. And we can say that this -- taking care of the
Earth -- is a human right. These three proposals must be considered as
part of a larger group of actions that we must carry out in an integrated
way in order to find a lasting solution to these problems. The current
economic system is unsustainable. We are faced with the moral imperative,
and the practical urgency, to rethink many things: the way we produce; the
way we consume; our culture of waste; our short-term vision; the
exploitation of the poor and our indifference towards them; the growing
inequalities and our dependence on harmful energy sources. We need to
think about all these challenges. Integral ecology suggests a new
conception of the relationship between us humans and Nature. This leads to
a new economy, where the production of wealth is directed to the integral
well-being of the human being and to the improvement -- not the
destruction -- of our common home. It also implies a renewed politics,
conceived as one of the highest forms of charity. Yes, love is
interpersonal, but love is also political. It involves all peoples and it
involves Nature. I invite therefore all of you to embark on this journey,
that I proposed in "Laudato Si’" and also in my new encyclical "Fratelli
Tutti." As the term Countdown suggests, we must act with urgency. Each
one of us can play a valuable role, if we all begin our journey today --
not tomorrow -- today. Because the future is built today, and it is not
built in isolation, but rather in community and in harmony.
Jimmy Carter's Full
"Crisis of Confidence" Speech
(July 15, 1979, youtube)
"I want to
talk to you right now about a fundamental threat to American democracy...
I do not refer to the outward strength of America, a nation that is at
peace tonight everywhere in the world, with unmatched economic power and
military might. The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a
crisis of confidence
. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and
soul and spirit of our national will. We can see this crisis in the
growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a
unity of purpose for our nation...In a nation that was proud of hard work,
strong families, close-knit communities, and our faith in God, too
us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption
. Human identity is
no longer defined by what one does, but by what one owns. But we've
discovered that owning things and consuming things does not satisfy our
longing for meaning...." -
Warren G. Harding
, Campaign Speech at Boston (1920).
anything the matter with world civilization, except that humanity is
viewing it through a vision impaired in a cataclysmal war. Poise has been
disturbed and nerves have been racked, and fever has rendered men
irrational; sometimes there have been draughts upon the dangerous cup of
barbarity and men have wandered far from safe paths, but the human
procession still marches in the right direction. Here in the United
States, we feel the reflex, rather than the hurting wound, but we still
think straight, and we mean to act straight, and mean to hold firmly to
all that was ours when war involved us, and seek the higher attainments
which are the only compensations that so supreme a tragedy may give
mankind. America's present need is not heroics, but healing; not nostrums
but normalcy; not revolution, but restoration; not agitation, but
adjustment; not surgery but serenity; not the dramatic, but the
dispassionate; not experiment but equipoise; not submergence in
internationality, but sustainment in triumphant nationality. It is one
thing to battle successfully against world domination by a military
autocracy, because the infinite God never intended such a program, but it
is quite another thing to revise human nature and suspend the fundamental
laws of life and all of life's acquirements. The world called for peace,
and has its precarious variety. America demands peace, formal as well as
actual, and means to have it, regardless of political exigencies and
campaign issues. If it must be a campaign issue, we shall have peace and
discuss it after wards, because the actuality is imperative, and the
theory is only illusive. Then we may set our own house in order. We
challenged the proposal that an armed autocrat should dominate the world,
it ill becomes us to assume that a rhetorical autocrat shall direct all
humanity. This republic has its ample tasks. If we put an end to false
economics which lure humanity to utter chaos, ours will be the commanding
example of world leadership today. If we can prove a representative
popular government under which a citizenship seeks what it may do for the
government rather than what the government may do for individuals, we
shall do more to make democracy safe for the world than all armed conflict
ever recorded. The world needs to be reminded that all human ills are not
curable by legislation, and that quantity of statutory enactment and
excess of government offer no substitute for quality of citizenship. . .
.My best judgment of America's needs is to steady down, to get squarely on
our feet, to make sure of the right path. Let's get out of the fevered
delirium of war, with the hallucination that all the money in the world is
to be made in the madness of war and the wildness of its aftermath. Let us
stop to consider that tranquility at home is more precious than peace
abroad, and that both our good fortune and our eminence are dependent on
the normal forward stride of all the American people.
The Hill We Climb
When day comes, we ask ourselves, where can we find
in this never-ending shade? The
loss we carry. A sea we must wade. We braved the belly of the beast. We’ve
learned that quiet isn’t always peace, and the norms and notions of what
“just” is isn’t always justice
. And yet
the dawn is ours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we weathered
and witnessed a nation that isn’t broken, but
. We, the successors of a country and a time where
a skinny Black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother
can dream of becoming president, only to find herself reciting for one.
And, yes, we are far from polished
from pristine, but that doesn’t mean we are striving to form a union that
is perfect. We are striving to forge our union with purpose. To compose a
country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of
man. And so we lift our gaze, not to what stands between us, but what
stands before us. We close the divide because we know to put our future
first, we must first put our differences aside. We lay down our arms so we
can reach out our arms to one another. We seek harm to none and harmony
for all. Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true. That even as we
grieved, we grew. That even as we hurt, we hoped. That even as we tired,
we tried. That we’ll forever be tied together, victorious. Not because we
will never again know defeat, but because we will never again sow
. Scripture tells us
to envision that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree, and
no one shall make them afraid. If we’re to live up to our own time, then
victory won’t lie in the blade, but in all the bridges we’ve made. That is
the promise to glade, the hill we climb, if only we dare. It’s because
being American is more than a pride we inherit. It’s the past we step into
and how we repair it. We’ve seen a force that would
shatter our nation
, rather than share
it. Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy. And this
effort very nearly succeeded. But while democracy can be periodically
delayed, it can never be permanently defeated. In this truth, in this
faith we trust, for while we have our eyes on the future, history has its
eyes on us. This is the era of just redemption. We feared at its
inception. We did not feel prepared to be the heirs of such a terrifying
hour. But within it we found the power to author a new chapter, to offer
hope and laughter to ourselves. So, while once we asked, how could we
possibly prevail over catastrophe, now we assert, how could catastrophe
possibly prevail over us? We will not march back to what was, but move to
what shall be: a country that is bruised but whole, benevolent but bold,
fierce and free. We will not be turned around or interrupted by
intimidation because we know our inaction and inertia will be the
inheritance of the next generation, become the future. Our blunders become
their burdens. But one thing is certain. If we merge mercy with might, and
might with right, then love becomes our legacy and change our children’s
birthright. So let us leave behind a country better than the one we were
left. Every breath from my bronze-pounded chest, we will raise this
wounded world into a wondrous one. We will rise from the golden hills of
the West. We will rise from the windswept Northeast where our forefathers
first realized revolution. We will rise from the lake-rimmed cities of the
Midwestern states. We will rise from the sun-baked South. We will rebuild,
reconcile, and recover. And every known nook of our nation and every
corner called our country, our people diverse and beautiful, will emerge
battered and beautiful. When day comes, we step out of the shade of flame
and unafraid. The new dawn balloons as we free it. For there is always
light, if only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to
