…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Europe, in its suicidal wish, allows itself to be ruled by childless politicians. After experience with childless Hitler, who left extraordinary number of children fatherless, a normal person should view such politicians claiming that they are the best suited to lead everybody to happy future, with deepest suspicions.
There can be physiological and other genuine reasons for infertility and self-inflicted infertility, however, most of those politicians make no secret that their choice was for reasons of career and lifestyle. Some claim it is not selfishness, just philanthropy. Maybe that is what appeal to voters – selfishness proudly worn on a sleeve.
One could perhaps suspect that they were selected, groomed and installed by the Big Money for the purpose. De riguer ruthless dishonesty of everyday politicians is supplemented by the useful apres deluge mentality. Now even Washington Examiner noticed:
James McPherson, writing in the Washington Examiner, makes a remarkable observation: the leaders of Europe have no children. France’s Emmanuel Macron has none. Same with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, Italian prime minister Paolo Gentilon, Holland’s Mark Rutte, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission. Sweden’s prime minister Stefan Lofven has no biological children.
The prime minister of Luxembourg is also childless. I mention him not to cherry pick, but because it means that of the six founding members of what evolved into the European Union, five are now led by childless prime ministers or presidents…”
