“Statecraft and statesmanship are according to the dictionary definition interchangeable. But the former has a more practical ring to it, emphasizing activity rather than rhetoric, strategy not just diplomacy.” Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
Prime Minister Harper understands and practices statecraft. I believe he will be one of the great Statesmen in the world.
A strectch? Pressure? I don’t think so. He has already shown character and ability.
I will go even further if Harper was an American President he would eventually, after another term with a majority government, be in the ranks of Ronald Reagan. In Britain he would be in the ranks of Margaret Thatcher.
No one compares to my all time favourite leader – Winston Churchill.
And, I don’t desire to see a major world war for Stephen Harper to prove himself in that theatre. Although… Canada has not been attacked with horrible terror like other countries in his watch even though he is pro-Israel. The jihadists fear Canada because our military have been in the frontlines of important wars. Furthermore, Harper has a spine and should the fools attempt something they would experience what he is made of and Canadians would be behind him and liberty.
The world is still in economic concern, perhaps for the next four or five years. Canada’s biggest trader will not recover like Canada with Obama and his regime, yet I remain reasonably comfortable, regardless, since the Conservative Party of Canada won a clear majority with 52 year-old brainy Harper at the helm.
Churchill, I believe, would likely have enjoyed our Prime Minister and his strategies for political and financial victories.
Margaret Thatcher ended her book “Statecraft (Strategies For A Changing World) with the following statement:
“The demand that power be limited and accountable, the determination that force shall not override justice, the conviction that individual human beings have an absolute moral worth which government must respect – such as things are uniquely embedded in the political culture of the English-speaking peoples. They are the bedrock of civilized statecraft. They are our enduring legacy to the world.”
I agree fully. Plus the English language is the number one in the world. People everywhere desire to speak it. The English language is victorious. Indeed, I like being part of a culture of winners.
