WHY DO WE HAVE LEADERS?
Such a silly question! Why, isn’t it obvious? They show us what to do. Without them, we would be lost, like the proverbial shepherd and his flock. Society could not function correctly. Since we depend on capitalistic enterprise, we need leaders to show us the way so that we can collectively continue to live and provide for our families. We also depend on republican government, needing leaders there to make wise decisions so that we may pursue our lives, liberty, and happiness.
In truth though, we count on our leaders to give us something more than just vision and intelligence. Otherwise, we could just go back to subsistence agriculture or hunting and gathering on our own.
