Ligon 1

Authoritarians are people who claim the right to tell people what to do without any basis in fact for that exercise of authority. Authoritarianism has found some disfavor. So, as is the conservative wont, the Cons have come up with a euphemism. LEADERSHIP is the new term.

Leadership doesn’t
Protect
Defend
Improve
Oppose

Instead of standing there with his hands in his pockets, you’d think he’d at least be holding a pen.

LEADERSHIP is sort of like OWNERSHIP. Neither is going to take you anywhere you want to go.
