When did brazen ignorance and incompetence become a substitute for true effective leadership?
When did creating a tactical diversion become a substitute for admitting your mistake and apologizing?
When did selling someone out or deflecting the blame become a substitute for taking responsibility for your own actions?
When did yelling and berating and hyperbole become a substitute for respectful conversation?
When did blaming others and criticizing the past become a substitute for a true plan of action?
And most importantly, when did we substitute our need for leadership with our love of theatrics or entertainment?
I don’t think we ever did. So why are so many individuals gaining influence using these reprehensible tactics (in Canada and around the world) – and why are we lending power to their voices?
