Dear Copywriting Comrade,
Perhaps the kindest thing one can say about our world leaders of 2021 is they’re not very imaginative.
Seriously, how did devils and despots come to power everywhere at once… presidents, prime ministers and premieres?
They just wrapped up COP26, a climate change conference in Scotland, where they flew to and from on over 400 private jets. Don’t worry. It’s for the greater good.
You’ve surely heard their alliterative slogan: “Build Back Better.”
There’s a plethora of compilations and montages of our ever capable leaders reciting this phrase… and they’re easy enough to find on YouTube… for now.
Do all world leaders belong to some brilliant, Borg-like ad agency collective… or is there something else behind it?
I don’t know the answer, but I have a feeling old Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum does.
