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 with help. It teaches that the genuine optimist desires common consent while the political optimist wants central control. Because we use majority rule, political personalities 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 political people, this book is a must read.
