Why good leaders are hard to find?

Good leaders are hard to find because no one is perfect enough to be a good leader. Each person has his own flaws and if they let these get the better of them, they give in to the temptations that the power they possess bring (which would eventually lead to corruption). Like what was said in the first post, times change and so do people. What was applicable in the past may be obsolete today. Life was simpler back then and people less learned so it was easier to command them around. Nowadays, people wisened hence, they have more demanding needs to be fulfilled and they are very much aware of their rights, making it difficult for leaders to lead them without being called a "bad leader".

I do not think that there is any leader in the past or the present that would be able to run today's society. This is my opinion, many other people may not agree with me. I think that society is consistly changing and getting more and more complicated. And one men can not and should not run society. Leaders from the past have done great things, but that was in the past and it was a totally different "map". "to run society" no one can. And if one human could, it would say that we as people would be in trouble, because it would probably mean a dictator.

Hello Polachicago, I would have to say that William Wallace, if given the chance could have been a great leader. Wallace was trying to unite Scotland. I think he was a great military leader, and if the clans of Scotland could have united, he would have been a great leader. I also think that if he was in today's time line he could unite the world, just like he tryed to unite the clans of Scotland. Peace, Totty

It's different era, different society, different leader. I don't know any leader from the past that can run today's society. It's not easy to be a leader. I believe that we have it within us, to lead ourselves for good. Once we realize this, we can be a good leader, or know which leader to follow. But it will take time, and in today's hectic life, time is sometimes a luxury.
