Mr. Snodgrass – what can you expect from the bug in God’s design of humans. That bug is that those who most seek leadership positions are exactly the people who should not lead? When you look at people who start successful endeavors, involving many people, that live long after their deathes, they are the kind of people who should lead. Take the for instance of Sam Walton. He was a good leader who just wanted to see retail stores that would operate efficiently and make the price of goods cheaper. (Bill Gates is not dead yet but I can already see his endeavor, Microsoft, turning into an evil empire,) As is the result in Sam Walton’s, and most cases, after their deathes, in a very few short generations, those who most want to but are the worst qualified to lead, take over and the endeavor turns into a tyrannical empire. This is obviously the case with Sam Walton’s endeavor. I think he was a good leader and great entrepreneur who created an empire with a purpose and the purpose (cheaper products) has turned it into an empire where the leaders are so enterested in pursueing it’s purpose that they care nothing about those who are working under their leadership. Sam’s dead but it hasn’t taken long after his death to turn his idea into an empire run by tyrants.
This is probably the most important lessons that I wasn’t taught by those whose purpose is to prepare us for life’s trials when I was young but learned from many years of experience. Too bad I’m not young enough to start over and try to oust the tyrants from positions of leadership. The reason that this lesson is not generally accepted is because those in positions of leadership, both in government and private enterprise, don’t want the masses to know the truth about them. They are stupid tyrants. Take the greatest endeavor ever started by a few courageous and brilliant men, The United States of America. Those people now in Washington DC are nearly all tyrants who will use any form of deceit to convince, We the People, that they are trying to make the nation better when they are nearly all stupid seekers of power who haven’t a clue why the plan of the founders is no longer working!
