The trouble with some leaders
I've often wondered why we idolise some of the people we call 'leaders.'
Do we idolise them because they represent something inherently deep within us - attainable, yet seemingly without the proper avenue to express itself?
Surely, the line that separates the ones who 'perform under pressure' and the ones who perennially underform is a fine one indeed.
When we respect -- or in its worse manifestation, worship -- a leader, are we essentially expressing something about ourselves?
