Why do the people need leaders?
Humans need leaders as they are not all the time rational. Leaders emerge to fulfill their emotional needs, the irrational part of being. Leaders help boost their confidence and to overcome fears.
Leaders are expendables
Leaders are expendables. Leaders are consuming their integrity and trust, as to cheat someone; to abandon someone; to gain someone’s affections; to give false hopes to someone, for the purpose to achieve certain objective. Even he succeeds, he often loses many valuable comrades and friends, affections and trust. Like a general, his victory builds on the graves of others.
Every leader is an expendable. Normally in four to ten years, he retires after consuming all his integrity. Some foolish leaders just cannot accept such fact: from the first day as a leader, he is under the state of consuming his integrity and trust.
