As Steem-Witness, meeting with important people as STEEM ambassadors bring us to better and greater understanding of what works and what does not work in real-world scenarios. One of the people that made a political decision that actually worked is Pepe Mujica, the 40th President of Uruguay
The Republic of STEEM
"Return to simplicity, with lives founded on human relationships, love, friendship, adventure, solidarity, and family, instead of lives shackled to the economy and the markets." - Pepe Mujica
I have seldom met a man with so much wisdom, and listening and learning from him has been a fantastic experience which we urge everyone to google for documentaries and speeches, because this man is the reason for Normalization of Cannabis, he did it in his own country Uruguay, and is now harvesting the highest order of gratitude from countries officials all over the world. Wherever he goes, people flock to listen, to adapt, to learn about politics that actually work and make people happier and lower the stress levels.
In STEEM we shape our digital republic, decentralized worldwide but with a common goal, to make this platform known and used by the masses of the world, in the future even onboard countries republic banks into cryptocurrency systems, and why not SMTs?
I am sure he liked the idea of sending money worldwide in 3 seconds, and he knows about a system called STEEM, a modern economic system with private banking functions and zero fees.

I just admire him for being so down-to-earth person. I just read an article about him a few months ago that he don't leave in luxury and he even gave his salary to help his people. I hope our politicians should learn from him on how to serve the people with clean conscience.
I`m from Uruguay and I voted for him.
But he ended up being just another corrupt politician, don`t let his sloppy image fool you.
Uruguay is sinking like the Titanic and he did nothing to change that. Just another corrupt sockpuppet.
His character is charming and lovely, but his acts don`t follow his "awww cute and wise grandpa" image that he tries to sell.
Plus: he is a murderer too.
Wow, this is deep. I think I can understand you @donstopmenow. We are also very frustrated with the Prime Minister of our country. Absolutely corrupted.
From your post he is acting like a psychopath. He is acting to be liked and using the position for his benefit. He is a murderer also killing for his evil purpose. Tell us what is he acused for and ehat are the alegations i would love to know
Ajajaj dificil explicar al pepe a los extranjeros. Suerte en Steemit
I hear you my friend! I'm Brazilian and, I no longer find it surprising how characters such as Mujica, Lula and Morales among others can portrait themselves as the leaders and saviours of our suffered nations. However, in reality they're only selling this image to those who know us from the tabloids and holiday reviews websites. There's no easy fix or heroes, I urge everyone to go a little deeper.
The best thing about Mr. Mujica is that he practices what he preaches. Not like others who speak of savage capitalism and are savage capitalists / Lo mejor del Señor Mujica es que practica lo que predica. No como otros que hablan de capitalismo salvaje y son unos salvajes capitalistas.
Not quite sure I agree! Mujica isn't as socialist as one might assume! #buzzkiller
@fyrstikken, in my opinion you have taken absolutely right decision by explaining the Steem Ecosystem to such an greatly influential man, literally who can take great and bold steps for the good, with words many people say, i also say, but you are the real action taker and really motivates me particularly to promote Steem Ecosystem some how. Now the real actions are reflecting everywhere, NED went to Korea and in Meetup, in section of SMT's possibly he gave an hint of Dtube coins which is great to hear, and after watching all these stuff, i want to do one very little promotional stuff which i will post any time in this month, i have two unique designs in my mind for the Steemit and Steem T-Shirts, because when direct way not works for the promotion we should try for the indirect way and i believe that, our attitude and appearance speaks lot than anything else. Keep doing this really integral work and wishing you an great day. Stay blessed. 🙂
I would like you to share more of his views of a system like Steem :)

I admire Pepe Mujica, the words he said, her philosophy, regardless of political performance (which I'm not sure). However, compared to other politicians, he has a position, a perspective, perhaps closer to humans.that is my perspective. I would have liked to read a little more of your conversation with him. Thanks for sharing part of the vision of this great man.
Excellent, simple, functional and important that in turn talking to the people who have had positive results, where the real success is perceived, this evidently improves the world, this is what is needed in Venezuela, more transparency and an authentic decentralized economy.
I love this person from my early age when i started to know about his lifestyle and his democratic purpose.I think his one of the best work is to donate to the poor people.He donated of around 90 percent of his $12,000 monthly salary to charities that benefit poor people and small entrepreneurs.Thanks @fyrst-witness for sharing it.I love this president from my core of my heart.
You've received my vote as witness! Great you visited this great man! He is a role model and a great politician.
