Moral Leader

It’s become obvious to me that the more moralistic the leader, the less moral he is likely to be.

“Morality means acting in ways that are sensitive to the needs of others….Moralism is the assumption that you know the right behavior for everyone…” ~ Thomas Moore, A Religion of One’s Own

Inhale Morality, Exhale Moralism…
Inhale Generosity, Exhale Judgment…
Inhale Grace, Exhale Sanctimony…

Absolute Power

If we lived up to what we say we believed…if we treated others the way we would like to be treated…if we could fully comprehend the internal impact of our behavior toward others on our own humanity, we would behave differently.

Of course, we can’t or don’t and so sometimes understanding the overt consequences of our behavior is enough to keep our egos in check.

But when there are no consistent consequences that deter us from ignoring morals and mores and manners, when there are no consistent consequences for deviant behavior…chaos ensues.

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” ~ Lord John Dalberg Acton

Inhale Morality, Exhale Immorality…
Inhale Consequences, Exhale Corruption…
Inhale Humanity, Exhale Nihilism…

The Evil Men Do…

People want to ascribe evil to only the most extreme behavior and label it inhuman. But evil is an all TOO human characteristic. And just like all the “isms” plaguing American society, is rooted in human frailty and fear.

“Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.” ~ W. H. Auden, English poet

Inhale Conscience, Exhale Corruption…
Inhale Morality, Exhale Apathy…
Inhale Humanity, Exhale Evil…
