In Any Type of Government, Leadership is a Must

Regardless of National or World government, Leadership is a must.
As I put my thoughts to paper, I realize the immense need for only the best of our Leaders to be on a governing body. They must be exemplary in every possible way. This is not nor cannot be a training ground for any who are not qualified. In this, I believe, age and experience are of great importance.

I place age first. Only because those extra years bring the experience I refer to. I have written that the experiences which have the most significant and lasting impact on us are often repeated. Examples of this abound in a marriage and/or the relationships between parent and child. It is an unavoidable truth, and most damaged people result from this.

Also, my position for many years is that leaders have more than just power over those they lead. They can either create an environment that allows followers to grow or an environment that is harmful and, in some cases, destructive.

So, although a world government may or may not occur, there should be means to restrict this group’s selection to include only the wisest. Ideally, these would be those who have demonstrated such wisdom over the years. And that they have given much to others, rejecting special and narrow interests. People like these have existed throughout the ages. Every nation and religion has given birth to them.

Naturally, this might never happen, but the danger remains that we may self-destruct. We can only guess what the future may bring, as it is not ours to know. Still, we see that much is not right. Simply accepting this as the way the world is and functions amounts to madness. The willingness to confront problems proactively is part of what makes an exceptional leader. Hopefully, they are among us.

Great leaders are few–A gift to be close to them–They are not a dream

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows

  1. Social media has ruined our society. Robots programmed to shovel disinformation at a high pace, not knowing what is fact or fiction and people making decisions by influence from silly memes misrepresenting the truth. But we can counter this by being honest with ourselves and friends and can even bring calmness to discussions with strangers by being polite and avoiding sarcasm and meanness. Being nice and humorous always wins even with the cynical. You can’t be angry if you’re laughing, if in fact we can find anything to laugh about.
    Climate change and its associated drought, wildfires, rising seas and plastics pollution are my most serious concerns. I’m doing what I can individually and professing discussion of solutions as often as possible. We are able to influence our immediate world and circle of friends. We must. We have no choice.
