Amilya Antonetti struggled to find a cure for her son’s ailments, and found with it a successful business.
Amilya had just given birth to her son, David, but her joy quickly turned to horror when the newborn would constantly cry in pain. The baby experienced shortness of breath and skin rashes. Not knowing what ails the baby, she and her husband consulted various specialists and doctors, to no avail. No one could them what is wrong with David or what triggers all the pain.
Instead of standing in line waiting for government to fix all the problems with her son, she got busy on her own;
Her spirit undaunted, she made a careful record of her baby’s life in the hope of finding the triggers to David’s painful reactions. She discovered that David’s pain was worst on Tuesdays, the day she cleans the house. Careful research led her to finally discover the culprits: chlorine and ammonia from her household cleaning products. The synthetic ingredients in the cleaning products caused David tremendous discomfort and pain. Amilya threw out her cleaning products and David’s crying finally stopped.
She then started her quest of developing cleaning products without synthetic-based ingredients. Using vegetable-based ingredients, she created a line of household cleaning products that are safe to use around David. Before long, word got around of the hypoallergenic cleaning products she developed. Her business, Soapworks, was born.
Amilya later became a best selling author and co-founder of a website where potential entrepreneurs can meet and hopefully be guided to the next level of their success.
Today however, like many business people in America, she’s discovering government standing squarely in the path to success, with no leadership to get government moved out of the way;
What entrepreneurs like Amelia need to realize is Obama has no intention of removing the obstacles preventing success, he put them there for a reason; to control them, only allowing certain “approved” business types to succeed.
His leadership style is to “lead from behind;”
“Leading from behind” is classic Alinskyite strategy. The idea is for the organizer to find out what the people he’s organizing want, give them enough of that to gain authority and control, then slowly and quietly push the group in his ideological direction, all the while making it seem as though the plan is what the people themselves have asked for. Obama used to literally lead from behind, by stage-managing his group’s protests from the back of the room, while the ostensible leaders took charge on stage. That is what Alinskyite organizers do.
Alinskyite organizers are tough when facing down the “enemy” (their word), but subtle, stealthy, and incremental when dealing with the members of their own group. Above all, they are never openly ideological. Everything is portrayed as pragmatism.
The trouble with Obama’s Alinskyite leadership style is that he’s trying to adapt it to the presidency, a role it was never designed for. When he tries classic Alinskyite polarization, he’s treating people he’s supposed to be leading as his enemies. When he tries to bring about leftist results under the guise of a neutral pragmatism, he disappoints his base, which desperately wants him to turn his eloquence to the task of persuading the country of their principles.
Business people like Amelia are Obama’s enemies; to treat them as anything but would make it hard to bleed them to pay for his various schemes. He must demonize them to keep his left wing from becoming empathetic toward them. They are the enemy; they don’t pay their fair share, only “ride to the top of their chosen fields on the backs of poor working Americans.”
What Amelia and others need to understand, is one doesn’t reason with a President Obama; one defeats him, at all costs. As Stanley Kurtz wrote in the above linked article, people like Obama (Alinskyites) don’t negotiate, the intentionally polarize. How then can one “negotiate” or even reach any level of “compromise” with one such as he?
There can be no compromise but victory over one who “leads” his own country to destruction.
