Rahm Emanuel: Don’t Waste A ‘Serious Crisis’

Posted by necessarygrace on November 21, 2008

Rahm Emanuel, President-Elect Obama’s appointed Chief of Staff and Mouthpiece To The Press shared their plans for the Obama Presidency.

You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

And by a completely unrelated coincidence, I happened to find this article about the German Interior Minister’s views on politics during times of crisis.

“We learned from the worldwide economic crisis of the 1920s (1930s) that an economic crisis can result in an incredible threat for all of society. The consequences of that depression was Adolf Hitler and, indirectly, World War II and Auschwitz,”

    I’ll grant you. That’s a really really bad quote and he is going to have to watch his words a tad more.

    But isn’t he cute? I told Shannon that viewership of MSNBC, CNN, and Fox is going to skyrocket every time he comes on the screen :)

    The way I interpreted it, wasn’t hearkening back to WWII Germany or any such nonsense, but that it’s the proponents of the ‘status quo’ that prevent measures to be developed that may have avoided crises in the first place. (Can’t trust the free market to do the ‘right thing’- most often it’s profit vs. consumer protection.)

    Seems that his comment speaks to ‘inertia’- objects at rest tend to stay that way etc. When something catastrophic happens the only way to right the applecart is to start picking up the pieces.

    Cordain wrote a book about his weight loss experience called A Life Unburdened: Getting Over Weight and Getting On With My Life and he’ll share his story with us on Monday. So keep these points in mind as the Recipes for paleo diet are not all that different than many of the potentially harmful compounds that need to be marinated for 24 hours.
