No one can deny, in face of the evidence, that it is easy, given military power, to produce a population of fanatical lunatics. It would be equally easy to produce a population of sane and reasonable people, but many governments do not wish to do so, since such people would fail to admire the politicians who are at the head of these governments. Bertrand Russell

This Person [David Cameron] may act a bit odd and thinks he kind of knows a bit more than most. He is no doubt egotistical, a control freak, very privileged has lots of money and enjoys yielding power. Probably brought up in a nice house, supporting family, financially secure. He was educated at a private school, seen a bit of the world, has learned to be very confident of himself

Apart from these attributes, he is not much different from anyone else. Same genes, same blood flowing through his body as you or me.

The only thing is, he may have learned things a bit faster coming from a privileged background, but there is nothing much he can do that someone else couldn’t given the right circumstances and opportunity.

In fact given that he is in charge of making decisions for a mass of people who have never experienced his privileged position he is probably the worst kind of person to do the job he does. Given his upbringing, what would he know about what ordinary folk need? Surely you or me would know that better than him? If he were honest he would tell you this himself, but he won’t, he is to proud, egotistical and thinks he knows everything, that’s why he wants to lead people, rather than represent them. He won’t even leave office when people don’t like him anymore – he will probably need to be forced, like the last one out and the next one in.

Having leaders is sometimes efficient and if they are benign can “lead” to great things. Unfortunately most of them have a tendency to turning into megalomaniacs. There is no use for them in a democracy, as they have proved time and again.

Don’t follow leaders
