I am friends with Steven Kates and an admirer of his important work on economics; though I do not agree with everything he proposes, especially in his combative blog called Law of Markets. At the same time, I always find it gainful to ponder his thoughts. His below take on good politicians and the nature of good politics strikes me as well worth considering - emphases added:
I’ve been paying close attention to Donald Trump since we happened to see his speech in Las Vegas that took him to the top of the polls. But politics is not about having a set of opinions. It is about working with other people to achieve collective ends. [...]
It’s not just the disgust he creates. It’s his lack of proportion. It’s his attitude to the views of those who disagree with him that is so disturbing. He has never run for or held political office. He has only run businesses, which is precisely the wrong kind of experience for anyone in politics. A business is an organisation that does work by command and control. There are decision makers and those who put those decisions into effect. That is not the way a free society works.
