Purpose: Power and Weakness

Herd notices Obama's Achilles:

The trouble is that any community built around purpose will soon unravel unless you're able to create feedback to show how the purpose is being achieved.

Have you used the phrase purposeful action lately?

Meanwhile, Gary Younge notices a few other things about Obama:

When I asked a group of volunteers in Charleston who had just literally danced through the streets on Martin Luther King day, why they were so excited about his candidacy, they told me they could not answer without prior approval from head office 115 miles away in Columbia.

Eventually the children notice that neither the action, nor the purpose, actually have anything to do with them.

I imagine an Obama presidency would be even more tragic than the Carter administration.
