Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new. – Henry David Thoreau
Here’s the thing. The world needs followers. If it weren’t for followers, there would be no need for leaders. Would make anarchy a much more achievable goal* I suppose.
Beyond that, I don’t have a lot to say on the subject. Other than it’s probably largely why I try to deny my leadership instincts… I don’t want followers.
* I took a test once…pretty involved test, had like 50 some questions about real issues *shrug* …. that said my political beliefs were 90% anarchist. Too bad I know it’s impossible.**
** Is it bad when your footnote is as long as or longer than the actual “essay”?
