I’m not going to go off on a tangent here or there. Or take a full paragrapgh or two to get to the main point. It’s a new week and I need some sleep and need to put this to bed. Here we go. For the last few years I have been singing “we’re off to see the wizard…” and you know how the rest of the ditty goes. Or I so presume.
I feel like there was once upon a time (maybe four score and seven years ago) true leadership. That individuals who can command true respect that has been earned used to exist. But these days it feels like the emperor wears no clothes. Or that you are to pay no mind to the main behind the curtain. The flying monkeys have gine insane yet they are the worker bees. I’m mixing all sorts of metaphors here. And why not? We can invent a new word every two seconds. Thus, we might as well go for all sorts of new word combinations. For the record, I mightily relish in making up new words. As a matter of fact, I was quite disappointed to find out that a word I thought I had invented was already a legitimate word. Everyone in my orbit had thought I had indeed made up that word. I suppose the world is wackier than I had believed.
Now, this bit is not about national leadership. This is about leadership in our everyday lives. At the factory. At the university. At the hospital. At the stock exchange floor. Everywhere. Everyone I know, notes how no leader is truly a leader. That expertise is dead. That inspiration is a thing you get from a television show.
This overall state of affairs saddens me. How did we get here? Better yet, how do we get out? We can certainly try to hold people accountable. But that assumes people care. We can maybe shock people as in the Milgram experiment. But that’s a bit unethical. We can continue to work on ourselves. But sometimes we are tired and/or lazy. I sound rather glum. How about this? We can change things for the better. We just need to really want it, work for it, and maintain it. I’m tired of being in the land of oz.
