Should authors become politicians?
No. Authors have empathy. Not required for politicos.
Maybe it should be.
Well, they are intelligent, well read, usually open minded, have imagination and creativity…. why the heck not!
Not all of them have any of those traots. There are some tertible authors out there
True. I’m generalizing. ?
That would be forward thinking….something that most politicians seem to frown upon.
No one should become a politician.
A couple of well-known authors are very political doesn’t make them politicians though.
Why should they not?
I enjoyed Franken’s books and I think he did a good job as senator- so my answer is yes.
No. I like the politicians we have. It’s so easy to tell when they’re lying. An authour, I’d have to wonder.
Id be more concerned about politicians becoming Authors ….
One famous author became to be a great politician, if consider his work for his country in a different perspective rather than following pop cultural belives. He is known as Adolf Hitler.
Well I think they can.. But than after we can’t get good books from that author
Author is just the title of a job… like a teacher or student. It has nothing to do with whether a person should be in politics or not.
These days I think you should have to have a law degree to go into politics. Too many people who have no idea are ruling countries.
It would make sense at least they would know the law and have at least read and studied the Constitution. It uses to be that way a long time ago
