What happens if no one leads?

-- Linda E. Dilliplane

>Gene says, "So, another connotation for it the leader has to define
>reality the implication is that those led are incapable of defining
>reality, so like a herd they must be lead along the way. The implication
>being that leadership is demeaning?"
>Actually all our experience with good leaders is that leadership is not
>demeaning, so there must be a flaw in this reasoning.
>The fact that the leader defines reality is not the same as saying the
>leader must define reality. The leader chooses to do it, I believe, and
>the followers choose to accept that view. This does not either imply that
>followers cannot and have not defined reality. They choose to follow a
>particular reality because it is appealing to them. People choose to
>lead, and people choose to follow. A leader in one context is a follower
>in another. A follower in one context is a leader in another.
>All this can be seen by observing what is around us.
> Rol Fessenden
