Where Are the Visionary Leaders?
Now we are lucky if we get an apology out of our failed leaders, as they head out to serve on the boards of corporations for millions of dollars in salary. Yet they also made promises to lead in an ethical way, with the best interests, "the highest good," as their goal. They promised they would do the people's work. They even took solemn oaths on the Bible and other sacred texts.
We seem to be, as though coming out of a fog of abuse and neglect, at long last speaking of our desires for true leadership. The media now spin this movement as a 'populist revolt.' I think that it is far more important and transformative than they would have us believe. What the talking heads are treating as a mere talking point, many of us are recognizing as our last best hope for any reclamation of our rights of self-determination. It is no less than a mass awakening.
If the people lead, the leaders will follow. I think that this might be true. For if all of us begin to create from our most noble Intentions, soon we could find that we have become the leaders we desire.
