An Honest Politician: School for Future World Leaders
Since I was a child, I imagined it would be amazing if the world had a huge "world leader" school that the brightest and kindest young minds around the world - regardless of socio-economic status - could aspire to. Full ride scholarships for incredible candidates who have high emotional intelligence, plus drive, and intellectual prowess. If such a school also had the best teachers in the world, surely it would be the perfect place to raise future political candidates for every nation and that in turn would help turn the planet into something more peaceful and fair.
In 2022, when the war in Ukraine began, I felt oddly inspired to write a movie script about this incredible school that has been in my head since childhood.
"An Honest Politician: School for Future World Leaders" is a movie that could help inspire a generation of the youngest and brightest minds to get politically involved and make a difference.
How to Help
Ordering and adding a review on Amazon for my screenplay are a little helpful, but the real impact, and my “unreasonable request” is that if you have any ties to movie makers, please let me know () so that maybe I can one day put this on the desk of someone "in the business" and get feedback. With a little tweaking maybe it would be the first example of a "movie with a purpose" in a long time. Lots of movies inspire kids to be "good kids", but not many movies have ever inspired children to get into politics. This represents an idea that I hope goes beyond inspiring children.... the concept for such a school could revolutionize and improve the quality of future policial world leaders. What do I know about building a school? Oh absouletly nothing... but I do believe that if this movie got made, it might inspire adults to build such a school, and the rest would be history.
I hope you decide to help me!
The invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 affected me in unexpected ways. As I watched on the news I wished that the United States and other countries would more actively help a country in need against a tyrannical dictator. For the US to help another country without any motive of revenge or resource gain. To do the right thing. I donated some money, as did others, but I started to think deeply about what it would take to have a world where every country had a benevolent leader. Someone with integrity and kindness. Controversy over the relationship between a former president and Putin himself and even possible election fraud makes me frustrated, but perhaps what's most frustrating is that it feels almost normalized now. Even in the most developed nation we expect politicians to be corrupt. What would it be like to have incorruptible politicians? Honest politicians. I started writing a screenplay about such a school, and published it to Amazon in August. I've never written a screenplay before, so it could probably be greatly improved, but the idea, I believe, is solid.
