Choosing Your Leaders?

I stumbled across a quote from a meme on FB.

I followed up, as many quotes are often mis-attributed. It was from Octavia Butler’s book “Parable Of the Talents.”  While that particular work of fiction may be good, or bad, or whatever, ..the quote is brilliance.  Some truths simply have a life of their own.

“Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool. To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen. To be led by a liar is to ask to be lied to. To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery.”

Dang.

That pretty much covers everyone.
