Very few political leaders would have completed a doctorate in quantum chemistry before becoming a country’s head. The 67-year-old Angela Merkel as Germany’s Chancellor has admitted that as a political leader she believed in the centrifugal forces of politics.
Since she assumed power in Germany, she tried her best to shift her political perception. One key thing was her extreme pride in the plea of the centrifugal forces not through Harvey’s Law but by Newton’s Law. The scientific theory of centrifugal forces has been repeatedly presented by her personality in order to ably fight with the political challenges.
One reacts: “Great leader, visionary and honest. She should be the role model for all leaders world over especially those who are good for nothing other than acting and dialogue baazi.”
Over 16 long years, she has devoted most of her political energy towards negating crises that could have, as The Guardian writes, spiralled out of control. It so appears at present that this very Newtonian concept is not limited to Germany only. It has widely spread all over the world.
Where are the political leaders not nullifying the people’s genuine causes? Though the wider earth is revolving around its axis slowly, the leaders are assumed to be adopting centrifugal forces to run their rule in various states.
The centrifugal forces in Newtonian mechanics are the invisible force that appears to function on a body moving in a circular path. There is real Centripetal force too that is the necessary inward force keeping the mass from moving in a straight line; it is the same size as the centrifugal force, with the distinct sign.
Centrifugal force is a vector quantity. The centrifugal force equals the product of mass and the centrifugal acceleration of the body. Perhaps she was well aware of the mood of the German photographers who were catching her snap that undeniably tells the perfect metaphor for her idea of unique leadership during the 16 long years.
She has devoted, as political critics point out, most of her political energy towards rescinding just issues.
More or less her idea of political leadership permeates throughout the length and breadth of the entire world at present. At the age of 67 years, she has reportedly decided to leave the political field. It is for the first time in post-war Germany that Merkel is not running for re-election. Despite this vital factor, there is an open race for the election of the next Chancellor.
It reminds us of last year’s American presidential election, where dis-enchanted voters would have preferred neither aspirant. The German election is shaping up almost the same way.
