No, thank YOU. Your responses are smart, reasoned, thoughtful, and really provocative.

I actually agree with much of what you just wrote. The ranting back and forth, at each other, without real dialogue, is pointless and has been going on pointlessly since time began.

It really gets us nowhere, and advances nothing.

I have also thought a lot about leaders and leadership and I agree that the idea of a single president, or chancellor, or king is anachronistic and obsolete. It doesn’t work and can’t really represent the people’s will. It is a failed oligarchy and a failed democracy.

Thank you for writing again. And for your graciousness.

If you post your book here, you can be sure I’ll be a follower and a very interested reader.

Good luck, CMW. From one writer in pursuit of the truth to another, I salute you.
