A lot has been said about the hope Barak Obama has brought about in the USA and around the world.
To me personally the main intrigue of his presidency will be in seeing the impact of IDEALISM on MATERIALISM.We have just learned from the Davos summit that recently the 40% of worlds money (50 billions of Dollars) has vanished into the deep black whole (where it probably originally came from). To be realistic, there is nowhere to exept help and immediate recovery from.
At the same time the amount of faith and optimism connected with Obama`s avatar is truly fascinating – millions do hope that he will perform a wonder and save the sinking world…
The USA has a notorious image of being a very materialistic country. My theory and a strong personal belief is that it is only idealism and high spirits of people that can perform wonders. And now I am very curious to see if Obama-test for America will prove that in the depth of its nature even such a money-and power oriented society is able to recover, uplifted by some higher ideals and its charismatic leader.
