Ok Joe, listen, I am certainly your oldest political friend in the current political life. You know, I cried when you didn’t stand for election at Hillarys run, I was so bewildered, because usually when I see something, it comes trough. But then Trump won and things never really have been the same since then. Not to say anything negative about Trump, I mean, I like him. But the diversion that his presidency has created are really dangerous. Getting back normal is really, really difficult.

Be as it may, this is important, if we want to secure a long lasting stability of the country, and the world as such.

I may not be the best to do these things, I am a revolutionary gone home cooking, and the itch is still there. Add to this, I have been practically imprisoned the last fifteen years, so my psyche is pretty torn.

BUT, I truly believe in unity, and in the ability to create a balance between right and left.

The challenges we face, are best faced together not apart from each other.

To me, the best response to the Trump presidency is not more division, but more unity.

Divided we fall, united we stand.

So how do we do that?

Well, being a philosopher, my answer is simple, or rather the idea is simple the approach is complex. We need to analyze and understand how to find the middle path between left and right.

All great presidents and PMs have been a middle path finder. It goes for Churchill, it goes for Obama, it goes for Reagan and it is probably the same these days. Mr. Cameron had the same, he was a little of one side, and a little of the other side. Damned shame he left politics if you ask me.

Politically, on my side, its the same. Lawrence of Arabia, that CREATED the Middle East as it is, was an Oxford Scholar. Rev. Brian Mountford, that is a blazing liberal theologican of Oxford that I have had the honour to meet is the same. A wise man and a deep thinker.

So in order to find unity, you need to find that middle path between left and right. On each issue.

I mean, remeber when you fought for Detroit? The motor city, that is old school Socialdemocratic policy. Obamas fight for the family, at the same time a socialstate. Beautiful middle ground policy. Or Churchill who started as a conservative, then was a Socialdemocrat, building the british welthfare system, and then went back to fight the Narzies.

This is a task for you as well. I know, that most of the Liberal world have gone half crazy and are gearing up for an anti Trump movement. This is as wrong as going anti liberal. To me, that would be the division that would have won.

What we need is not more division, but more compromise, cross the aisle dialogue, also internationally. Finding a middle path between terrorist and most muslims, and also support the dialogue.

Finding a middle path with the enemies. Not fighting Russia, only fighting China.

In this perspective, people in th US as well a abroad will see, hopefully, a unifier and not a divider, as a contrast to Trump.

It requires dialogue, discussion, reflection on each issue. It is really difficult, but it is extremely difficult to be the President of the United States. The most challenging job of the world, I suppose.

Anyway, please Joe, do not go down that road of division, but try to unite the world. Fight those fights you need to, but not more than that. And be predictable, so that people understand what is going on.

Be a unifier.

G-d bless the will to be a unifier.
