It’s sometimes difficult to be able to distinguish between an idea and the man behind the idea. The more we try and highlight the dichotomy, the more these two concepts tend to fuse together and create a different image from what a person’s characteristics actually are in their basic, distilled form.
The mode d’emploi in winning the political game isn’t solely about who has the best policy, or who promises to deliver the most iPads to the most number of people. If it were solely up to that, no bastardized son of an orangutan and a tangerine with the hair of a bleached Vileda mop and the physique of a wine barrel would be near twenty miles near the seat of power at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But since the opposite is true, Mr Trump might have a shot at winning the election.
Resignations and the National Youth Council have been a synonymous characteristic during these past years; yet it’s not the manner, frequency and upshot of these resignations which are the most troubling aspect facing the council. Rather, it’s what comes after.
Vice-President Ryan Pace, Secretary General Thomas Bajada, PRO Chris Vella and Social Policy Officer Samantha Pace Gasan, in a co-signed letter addressed to KNZ member organisations, have all submitted their resignation to the council’s control board.
One of the most popular sci-fi flicks in recent memory, the Wachowski’s “The Matrix”, featured an unforgettable scene where the protagonist, Neo (played by Keanu Reeves, an actor who would perfect his emotionless, blank stare in many more of his other projects) is faced with a seemingly harmless decision: A simple choice between a red pill, and a blue pill. After some mumbo-jumbo about finding the truth and so on and so forth, the protagonist takes the red pill… and everything goes to shit. (Honestly, if you’ve lived under a rock for the past twenty years and never heard of either The Matrix or the Wachowskis, go ahead and watch it now, it’s really, really good. Ignore the sequels though, they’re a waste of time unless you’re into needless, computer-generated action porn).
