Driving is best done solo

In a perfectly democratic world, do we even need leaders?

We live in an era that is more democratic and inclusive than any other period in history. In our homes, our workplaces and in our public lives, each one of us can voice our opinions and make our own life’s choice. As a consequence, our leaders leaders have less authority.

However, several important decisions cannot be a matter of consensus. A bus full of bus drivers, each with a steering wheel, would end in disaster very soon. They need to relegate the task of driving the bus to one driver.

A perfectly democratic world cannot do away with leaders. In fact, it needs better leaders who can lead by influence rather than authority.
