The Political Optimist
A political optimist imposes confidence from an elitist distance. They are outside consultants telling you have to handle an inside crisis. They look and sound close, but in truth, their heart is far from you. They speak of their capital success without any attempt to understand your concerned mind.
Written for those who struggle with political people, you will love The Political Optimist. It promotes the safeguards of “being real” as a counter measure to “being political.” It teaches how to stand to be corrected while still questioning authority. If you want to know the difference between political people and genuine optimists, this book teaches that the genuine optimist desires common consent while the political optimist wants central control. Because we use majority rule, political personalities can easily destroy individual liberty and the voice of dissent. If you are stuck in a political situation at work or if you are struggling with leadership, this book is a must read.
Today we use success to magically detach us from the burdens others still carry. This is opposite of the leader who carries those burdens. In a way, success is a kind of detachment that political optimists thrive on because it produces top-down, centrally controlled organizations. This model of power places leadership at a greater distance from those with volunteerism and vision in their heart. It is no wonder why the Master stands out in perfect opposition to all political optimists, because He descended below them all.
Written for those who struggle with political people, you will love this book. It promotes the safeguards of “being real” as a counter measure to “being political.” It teaches how to stand to be corrected while still maintaining our best quality to question authority.
If you want to know the difference between political people and real optimists, this book explains it all. The answer requires that we give relational thinking equal footing to the linear mind. This will undoubtedly challenge established power structures everywhere.
The solution to a political world is nothing new but something lost. The Political Optimist highlights our lost humanity for optimism and calls for a return to the oral traditions of common dissent.It is time we see democracy stripped of coercive controls. It is time for common consent to scale in both modular and horizontal form. It is time we reject leaders sowing discord in purely upbeat ways and solely with the intent to gain more central control.

This is a tremendously important book, as good a book ever written on freedoms and self-governing. The Political Optimist should be read by every citizen who consents to free voice in a collective fashion to enhance their communities and their lives.

The Political Optimist is as much a study in personality profiles as it is an indictment of hierarchies. Driving their points across with colorful, entertaining anecdotes as well as historical and modern examples, the authors illustrate the lack of honest and genuine bonds around which we structure so much of our lives. Along the way they create an entirely new nomenclature to arm the reader with the tools needed to essentially make the world a better place, all but daring us to change the way we view idolatry, authority and social discourse. With a little traction and exposure, The Political Optimist could be a game changer.

The authors present a compelling insight into the hypocritical verses the genuine forms of optimism. How we detect them and come to understand the difference will save our political system in business, religion and politics.
