duty as motivation

Chapman GrubbJune 14, 2020

In all the stories of medieval times, you see young leaders who grow into their roles. When faced with the difficult choices and struggles of leadership - they realize that duty is their lone option. They can’t get out of the situation. There is no way to avoid conflict as a responsible leader. The hard choices must be made, and no one else wants to. 

I do think that’s why it took so many years of human existence on the planet to get around to creating democracy. It’s far easier to say - you, you’re in charge. Thanks for making all the crippling choices. Leaders have the power to protect us and the obligation to follow through.
