Word Is: Objective?!
January 1, 1970Carmel Voice Column by Steve Shapiro
Seeing and perception demand, in politics, for them to be objective. Still, a matter of perception, but conscientiously not so subtle. Once the objective reasoning on direction for our nation reaches the speakers podium, another objective comes into play and that would be the addenda.
Like the war in Iraq: The Generals give leadership objectives. When they complete their missions, close the objective, can the military tell when they won? Like in Carmel: Why can replacing trees down the center strip, at Ocean Avenue be seen as a telling objective? Can you tell? Do we care?
With this winter coming on like a lamb, going up again like a lion, whose objective are we subjects? What objective can we control?
There are the girls who have put themselves out there in politics, in government service with an objective point of view, then they’re attacked and only the climate of their return will show if they have that control constituents want to see in politics. We want to know about objectives to accomplish resolution on the issues, why change Social Security and not simply the administration of it? It worked for decades and now it seems to be lost of leadership; and state run [government] medical care with an objective curriculum to offer medical care to every citizen . . . so what about doctors’ rights? Can anyone argue without objectivity the need for greater attention to education and the health and safety of our national citizens? Is there a new objective for the accomplishment of disaster relief?
With the expression objective comes neutral point of view and, sometimes opposing, direction for material accomplishment. In Iraq, military objectives were met, but the profit motive objectives maybe have not, yet. So, with an objective point of view in a bipartisan legislative government, all the objectives point to one end, which is to end the war. Although no one really knows how.
In the campaign for President, two objective points of view in reference to candidates, with one as a racial minority, and another a gender underpinned person, while a third a religious minority compliment two parties with objectives for which we must find objective points of view. Then, for the private sector, and in particular Hollywood, a toss of mud from a support group of one ‘rich person.’ What objective does that bring onto the scene of political health? Certainly not a clear or balanced point of view!
What’s Hollywood got to do with out national objectives? And, those films are certainly not objective. Telling balanced stories without conflict is not at all the objective: entertainment.
Our current Carmel Mayor can’t tell the trees to never grow roots that disrupt the roads, but the objective is to give trees in Carmel another chance. The environment, as an objective has found a home in this community; but can we say objectively that we like being part of an environmental experiment? It’s clean. Didn’t Andy Warhol say, “Clean is beautiful, beautiful in clean.” The press isn’t real, just a reflection of what’s going on and they can’t stay objective anyway.
Anybody call out to Sue McCloud, “What up with all the new trees? Who’s going to water them?” Who can tell by whose objective will they survive? Trees are up. Feed a tree lately? Well, someone found a way to provide the water: It’s raining. Who’s objective is that?
What’s to notice about the objective leader who can’t determine the objective makes up the success? We already discovered about those who disrupt the objective: He’s dumb. And the President can’t tell. Can the presidential candidates sustain their objectivity and their objective, too?
Word is, our objective is considered only by us, the American citizens to be in control of our freedoms, and objectively others outside this country don’t’ see our objective points.
The idea of giving away our good for one, good for the most objective is hard to see as anything but objective, but then they can’t tell if they have that attitude only because of their pride in their nation.
Word is: When you have an objective, you can be objective.
. . . say it’s confusing. And in newspaper columns the objective, objective is to see clearly so as to show it.
Though we talk trees in Carmel, we all vote nationally with so much to talk about; and we suffer from war internationally with an awful lot to loose and distract us all; for the objective is to look upon the global community as an unconditional asset and objectively.
If I repeat myself enough, I’ll make that the objective. I can see clearly without doubt for criticism, unarguably how my point is one that’s objective.
