Leaders Are Followers

The little old lady l met the other day who worked in Parliament said something that has stuck with me.  It's kind of profound, and l haven't heard it before,but it is so true.

Our Leaders Are Followers.  Think about it.  Our leaders don't lead.  They Follow what the masses want them to do.

If the masses squawk loud enough, they will do something about it, until then there is no pro-active leadership in our governments.  Maybe that's what we need.  A government that is run more like a cutting edge business.  Thinking ahead on what the peoples problems and needs are, before  the people realize what they are and protest for them.

  1. My theory has always been the people who would do an excellent job of running things are way to smart to go into politics!

    On the other hand, it must be extremely difficult to have a job that requires pleasing the masses to keep said job. Lot's of pressure to maintain the status quo so as to keep that personal job security.
