When I Fall in Love

What about a politician’s or clan’s “Rise and Fall” most intrigues you? What do you imagine it must be like to be famous and powerful one moment in history, only to be disgraced and banished the next? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 565).

Verb: infatuate
1. Arouse unreasoning love or passion in and cause to behave in an irrational way
[WordWeb Pro]

I have been infatuated by people and by things. I’ve been infatuated by stock I knew would triple in a year. I have been infatuated by a car that I purchased on the spot knowing for certain it had all positives and no negatives. Ironically, often our bigger more important decisions entail the most ignorance regarding realistic particulars, so we are impelled to act based on emotion and symbolism. This is spectacularly true in politics in which less as to program details can be more as to emotive power. In this climate there is little wonder that politicians “Rise” on promises and “Fall” when inexorably faced with the paradoxes and complexities of the real world. We learned the hard way that the gallant white horse can carry a veiled buffoon.
