Onward, Soldiers

Leadership should not be confused with Privileged Follower. The former is about a universal human capacity that can potentially enhance the collective interest of sentient beings. The latter, far too often, is about exploitation and a command structure inappropriate for contexts outside of war. Cults frequently function primarily from the loyalty of Priveleged Followers. Consciously recognizing this seems like a good thing.

Who then might be representative of a Privileged Follower as defined above?

  1. Well, me for one. I like the privileges of following the laws of the US, privileges like staying out of the slammer. See what can happen when one is subject to a deadlines (self imposed or otherwise)? Good thing I didn't forfeit my Slacker citizenship.
