The Great Successor

You probably know that Kim Jong-Un is the newest leader of North Korea, having inherited the position from his father the Dear Leader Kim Jong-il. What you may not know is that the young Kim is a genius with super mental powers. Here is the information in the Washington Post.

Kim Jong Eun, according to propaganda described in a recent Chinese magazine article, learned to drive at age 3. By 8, he could safely maneuver dirt roads at 75 mph. As a teenager, he mastered four foreign languages. He is now learning three more.

The emerging biography of North Korea’s new leader, considered fictitious in nearly every country but his own, portrays him as the ultimate quick study, a poet and a marksman, an economics whiz and a military strategist.

North Korea is lucky to have a great man like him as their leader. Of course he is not an enlightened being like our own Dear Leader.

Here’s where it gets gooey. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.

But then you can’t have everything.

By the way, that was from a column written by a Mark Morford back in 2008. I wonder if he is embarrassed by what he wrote. Judging by his more recent columns, probably not.
