"I went to Jerusalem to become acquainted (Gk. istoria) with Cephas" - Paul's words from Galatians 1:18.

Principle, Courage, and Will Equal Real Leadership

The age of mass communication has led to domination by the masses.

Cool rules.

"Where have all of America's great leaders gone?"

They've been crushed by the masses.

It's not that great leaders themselves are crushed, for real leaders are never dominated by their environment. But the ability to lead is thwarted by the false reality of those needing leadership. What the masses perceive is what the masses receive.

I don't think that England would have survived World War II without Winston Churchill. Churchill, a man of principle, knew Nazi Germany presented an existential threat to western civilization. Churchill fought Germany on the basis of his principles, which fueled his courage, and ultimately forged an "iron will" in him and the nation he led.

When Adolph Hitler turned his sights on England, promising to bomb the English to hell and back, Churchill took to the airwaves on June 4, 1940 and gave his famous speech "We shall fight them on the beaches." He said,
"Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail.
We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;
we shall never surrender.
And even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”
I believe that if Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and other forms of social media existed in Churchill's day, one look by the masses of England at the bombed out buildings and horrific bloodshed of men, women and children in London during the 1940 London Blitz would have been enough to lead the English people to capitulate to Germany. Even with only newspapers and black-and-white photos of the Blitz available to the masses in 1940, the pressure by the English to relent and join European capitulation to Nazi Germany was intense. Had it not been for the great leadership of Winston Churchill, England and America today might be very well teaching their school children the German language.

Great leaders arise in times of crisis. Mass opinion, mass desires, and mass thought are not as important in existential crisis as are principles, courage and iron wills. When a nation is in trouble, great leaders lead because the masses become increasingly irrelevant.

This is why America's Founding Father's feared democracy. The Founding Father's knew that democracy prevents great leaders from taking the stage. The only principle that guides politicians in a nation dominated by the masses is "Do others like me?" The only principle that guides the masses of people in a nation dominated by democratic rule is "What has the government done for me?"

Only world war, world conflict, or unthinkable natural disasters give the needed opportunity for a new set of great leaders  to arise - leaders who live by principle, courage and will. In those nations accustomed to domination by the masses, great leaders sit on the sidelines. 

It seems to me that the path of the United States is spiraling toward worldwide conflict. The only good news from this prediction is that the door may be opening for a restoration of great leadership in America.

"What the masses perceive is what the masses receive"

Mostly true perhaps. Hopefully, if the first female Gestapo gets "elected" (appointed), there will be a wholesale uprising by the masses of the people against her and the corrupt departments/media/corporations/banks behind her. Will be interesting to see what's in store...only days away.

Someone of the caliber of Carson was criticized for a minute delay between his debate question and his answer. Geesh. Tired of seeing people rudely interrupt and/or over-speak one another.

Churchill was the son of an American woman. :) We can very very proud of this son of Jennie Jerome Churchill.

I was watching the film 'Gettysburg' with my husband, and it came to the famous speech by Colonel Joshua Chamberlain enacted in the film, and I thought THIS is American leadership and it is STILL in our DNA.

I'm told when we go to the polls, there will be people there with guns trying to intimidate voters, especially those voters who are minorities. I hope that the local authorities will not 'look away'.

I want to express this thought: that we have to trust in our system to give voice to those who seek power, to their examination by the 'fifth estate' (the media), and by their own words. I will accept the will of the people of our country in this election. I do NOT believe for a minute that there is anyone in this country who is a true American who would participate in revolution against the will of the people. I say this as the daughter of an immigrant (paternal) AND daughter of an old American family whose patriarch came here in the 1600's. My husband's family had an ancestor who fought in the Revolutionary War. My great-uncle William James Ausbon was one of the six Confederate heroes of the Siege of Petersburg. My father fought in WWII. My husband saw action aboard a destroyer in Viet Nam. My nephew saw duty in Afghanistan. My niece served in Iraq AND Afghanistan. And my son is on active duty in the United States Coast Guard. All of my husband's six brothers have passed on, and they all served their country in our military.

I am American to the backbone. I look for a free election, without intimidation. And for a peaceful transfer of power, as is our tradition. I cannot accept that we are less than that. May God help us all.

Absolutely agreed. One other thing Churchill said: "you can always trust Americans to do the right thing after they've tried everything else." I would argue our problems in the US are far deeper than us getting away from the Founding Fathers' vision, or even from God's design, as some would suggest. I think there is an insidious desire for things to be comfortable among Americans. Comfort over concern for others. We saw this with the rejection of Jewish children prior to the Holocaust and we are seeing it now in simplistic explanations of global conflict and the people that war naturally affects. America not only has succumbed to fear -absolutely agreed with Wade- as a result of information explosion, but also got stuck in the rage part of grief as it sees itself diminished as just another nation among many, now interconnected. Many Americans have chosen to take out that rage in suspicion of foreigners and those unlike themselves. Maybe not physically yet, but definitely verbally/online. It hurts to watch, as someone who grew up elsewhere and stood up for Americans as some of the kindest people in the world. That just isn't true anymore. The mockery and jaded smugness I have seen all year on all sides is tragic. The threats to poll watch in an intimidating fashion are not what I grew up loving about America, but rather what I associated with totalitarianism. It was wonderful to vote early and see people being polite and gracious despite a variety of political preferences. But I couldn't help but wonder if any of those there were hiding out online in their spare time talking big about threatening those unlike them. I sure hope not. What has been the most depressing thing is reading a bio of someone who behaves like that and seeing it connected with Jesus. It's not. It's not even what I consider American nor patriotic. It's just bullying.
So I echo this: God help us all. Pray for United States.

Leadership begins with a servants heart.

Our own Savior taught us this when He lowered Himself to leave the throne of heaven to become a man, be born as we are, feel pain as we do, suffer loss as we have and will and more. So, one day while arguing over who was better He showed us His greatest moment of leadership...he wrapped the towel around His waist and washed the feet of the men who claimed to worship Him. I am sure you all know the significance of washing feet in that culture and time too.

Who among our "leaders" today has demonstrated even something close to servant-leadership? Who among our potential leaders does this? I agree some have, but i also agree that many with and above them make sure they never see real power. The Clintons have been failing this test for many years as we have seen their inner workings since he first became governor in Arkansas. They are above the law, answer to no one (not even the FBI when caught) and certainly do not respect the average person. Trump fails the test too as his braggadocio methodology regardless of the business success belies a person who sees himself as above us too. He does want to see America as great again, I do believe he wants us there but I have no illusions as to his character. Who might I be voting for...if you wish to get into a discussion on why pick another time and thread, its not relevant here...we're talking about leadership...I do not consider either of these two "great" when it comes to leadership. One can do the job better than the other in my opinion but greatness as I am describing it is elusive to both.

We saw the greatness of a man like Washington in the trial at Valley Forge...
We witnessed the greatness of a man like George Patton AFTER he was humbled in the soldier slapping incident...
We have ample evidences of many leaders throughout history in various levels who demonstrate that humble greatness that sets them apart. There is a spirit of humility in each one that draws people into the team effort with them in an almost natural way.

What I am about to post will be controversial to non-believers. Some would see it as a violation of the fraudulent "separation of Church and State," that often misused phrase penned by Jefferson in a letter to the Danbury Baptists...but its not being posited in that fashion at all. It is a quote by the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Jay.

John Jay was a very committed believer. He specifically called us a "Christian Nation!" He said the following about who our leaders should be:

"Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." (William Jay, The Life of John Jay (New York: J. & J. Harper, 1833), Vol II, p. 376 to John Murray, Jr. on October 12, 1816)

If you know anything about John Jay you would know he said this for the very reasons I want as well. He believed in "Servant Leaders" who adhere to the precepts and teachings of the Lord of all Creation...that same One Who demonstrated the humility to all of us and ultimately served us all by dying on the Cross. Now, I am not saying that we need to have someone who has suffered the same as Christ did, but I am saying it should be someone who would be willing...

That....would be a GREAT leader.

Noticing similar. And it took some guts putting up a sign for an alternative party in these polarized times. Thankfully things at the polls were pleasant and respectful. May it continue.

I agree the saddest thing about this election has been the lack of character of the main two candidates, and that leadership is only true when it comes from a humble place (Philippians 2). Important point.

Powerful article, Wade! I would like to point out that Alexis de Tocqueville, in his famous work "Democracy in America" (published in 1835 and 1840), he accurately predicted what we today call "political correctness". he described it as extinguishing the liberty of the mind, by the opinion of the masses.

Christiane - there is sufficient and credible evidence available on the net that the people do not select the president. It's easier to deceive people, than to convince them they've been deceived.

There is an all-time high of corruption in our country right now and I believe the founding fathers would revolt at a mere fraction of it. They never wanted the people to trust government. The moment the people did was when the country went quickly down the slippery slope.

Hi WAYNE

I don't believe the American people are wholesale cheaters across the country trying to usurp the election process, no.

The WORST thing that HAS happened is that 'gerry-mandering' has messed up the voting for the House of Representatives. That IS something that needs to be corrected, and I believe it will be in time.

I have faith in the people of this country to do the right thing as they see it. And I have faith in the great majority of those people who monitor our voting process.

I do NOT TRUST any officials who cut down on the amount of time allowed for voting and cut the number of polling places so badly that the process is impaired in those areas where the 'officials' don't want folks to vote anyway. We have seen this, yes.
The courts are attempting to intervene on behalf of the voters, though, and the officials have been somewhat thwarted in their attempts to sabotage the voting in those areas, thank God.

Study up on 'checks and balances' (read the Constitution of the US) and don't rely on the alt-right for accurate info as they have an agenda that is UN-American majorly. Best of luck. Thanks for communicating with me.

Christiane - Many parallels between the government's interpretation of the constitution and the church's interpretation of the Bible. Opinions are cheap and plentiful, but perspective is costly and rare.

It took me ten years or so of study and thought to wake up to the fact that I had been indoctrinated for 40 years with a view of Scripture that had Pastors as CEO's and big chiefs of the body of Christ (holding people hostage as sheeples), and women in general held in bondage and subjugated to men. What a crime!

Not much different with the subject of American government. We the people have been slowly deceived and indoctrinated. It appears the constitutional republic form of government only lasted 7 decades or so from its inception. Democracy (rule by the mob) slowly took it over, though the majority at the time thought differently (republic still exist). Oligarchy has been taking over democracy slowly, though the majority think differently (democracy still exists).

Just my opinion. :) Here's a good guy to learn perspective from about the Constitution. Skip to the 22 min mark for his candid thoughts about the people's options when gov't violates our rights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1s-zHrNPfkQ

BTW - I live in/near the land of Fed gov't. Almost three decades of dealing with people that work in just about any department you can think of. I know too much to think differently.

One of the more annoying things about Americans is that their understanding of Democracy is flawed, and this piece by Wade seems to be one of them.

As an non-American, I can't remember how many times I have discussed this issue with Americans who say things like "America is not a Democracy, it is a Republic", sounding wise to themselves. Democracy, the argument goes, is all about the majority making a decision, while in a Republic, these decisions are made by appointed representatives in the Legislature.

But Democracy is implicit in the first words of the US Constitution - "We the people... ordain the constitution".

And what do we find in this constitution? The establishment of a legislative system that is determined by popular vote; the establishment of a president who is determined by an electoral college that is, in turn, determined by popular vote; and the eastablishment of a judiciary that is determined by the Senate and President - both of whom are determined by popular vote.

But if we take "Democracy" to mean the majority always making the decisions, we end up with a very strange situation - no nation in the world is a Democracy. And the majority of free, western, industrialised nations are run by who? Representatives elected by the population.

Twitter, Facebook, etc. That's not democracy. That's public opinion. And public opinion has never formally ruled as a Democratic government - all that public opinion can do is select representatives. And public opinion is what has selected representatives since the United States began as a country. It was public opinion that kept America out of World War 2, and it was public opinion that allowed the 2003 invasion of Iraq. It was public opinion that created Roosevelt's New Deal, Reagan's free market militarism and the Civil War.

A Republic that is created by the will of the people is flawed because people are flawed and the people they choose are flawed. This has always been the case.

But of course great leaders can exist within a Republic created by the will of the people. Churchill was Prime Minister because the parliament of the UK appointed him to the position, with the Parliament itself determined by the votes of people. Any great president of the US was placed there through the will of the people.

Don't somehow think that Democracy is the enemy. It isn't. Ignorance and fear are the enemy, and ignorance and fear infect the levers of Democracy in the same way that ignorance and fear can also infect the minds of tyrants and dictators.

Christiane said...

what I love about our system of government is how it tries to protect the rights of minorities

This is the most honorable form of government ..... the protection of the weaker members from abuse, giving voice to those at the margins of our society, and understanding that 'the common good' of all of the people cannot be destructively violated for the profits of a few powerful interests

I see much in our form of government to celebrate. It is both a democracy AND a republic in the sense that there are checks and balances to keep any one branch of government from being 'too' powerful, AND to distribute power throughout the land rather than completely centralize it.

My biggest concern these days is the 'nuclear' issue:
our president must be stable enough to comprehend this powerful responsibility. Only one of our candidates is stable enough to have the nuclear codes. This is the one area of concern we cannot overlook.

Wade Burleson said...

One-Salient-Oversight,

There is a huge difference between a democratic-republic - with representatives elected by the people ruled by the constitution - and democracy.

I'm not saying we are a "Republic" to look smart.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag ... and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands."

Rex Ray said...

There can never be “Great Leaders” without ‘stressful situations’. If Hitler had been a ‘nice’ man, would the world have known Churchill? He said: “All we have to fear is fear itself.” On the funny side: “If you were my husband, I’d give you poison.” If I were your husband…”

Before “D Day”, our dad was in England. After German rockets hit England from time to time, the newspapers (I believe influenced by Churchill) would make fun of the damage: “Two goats killed…”

If dad said something in a certain way in a letter, it meant there would be something under the postage stamp that would get by ‘army censers’. One message from England read: “Bombed last night.”

I can’t remember a more stressful presidential election than we have at hand. Since “Truth will set us free”, how do we know truth?

America started distrusting the government with the cover-up of who killed President Kennedy.

I believe America is at a crossroad. Basically, do we want more of the same, or do we want change?

Christiane,

I believe America has bent over backwards in protecting the rights of minorities; so much that the majority is suffering. Example the right of anyone to use any restroom based on ‘how they feel’. Duh

Rex, remember when the Ms. asked Franklin after he got out of the convention what form of govt do we have? He said "a republic **if** you can keep it".

How can one keep that which one never had? Of course, the Feds for a long time have been key to keeping the illusion of a republic alive by giving the masses more and more 'breads and circuses' just like Rome. I do business with people (white collar and blue collar) from the Mississippi to the Atlantic and have found most are bankrupt on personal integrity when it comes to honesty. How the heck can a principled republic form of govt of/for/by the people be kept by the majority who are unprincipled? Not gonna happen.

I've got friends (who make no claim to love Jesus) that had to request to be transferred to another department due to the level of corruption within their Fed department. Makes me wonder how a genuine lover of Christ can remain uncompromised and work in any of those departments.

Winston Churchill did not just become this type of man overnight. It was the test of his character over and over again that prepared him for the call to lead England. This too is how the steel of character is honed. In time the steel will be hardened and leaders will rise. It is the SHEOPLE we need to be concerned about.

MORE HILLARY CORRUPTION

http://nation.foxnews.com/2016/11/06/daily-caller-exclusive-virginia-gov-pardons-60000-felons-enough-swing-election

By Luke Rosiak | The Daily Caller
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has granted voting rights to as many as 60,000 convicted felons just in time for them to register to vote, nearly five times more than previously reported and enough to win the state for his long-time friend, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

McAuliffe sought to allow all of Virginia’s estimated 200,000 felons to vote, but state courts said each individual felon’s circumstances must be weighed.

To get around that, McAuliffe used a mechanical autopen to rapidly sign thousands of letters, as if he had personally reviewed them, even as his office was saying the total was 13,000.

“Friend and ‘fund raiser’ for Hillary, Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, has used his executive power to restore more than 200,000 convicted felons aimed, he said, at disenfranchising African-Americans.”

Now Virginia has joined all but nine states that let people vote who have paid their debt to society.

That means they are out of prison, and no longer on parole terms.

Good for him.

3. Their identities are known vs. not prosecuted.

4. Truth vs. Hillary cover-up

Wayne,

Your link is a shocker! Too much smoke not to be a FIRE in several areas!

It reminds me of the ‘real’ J. Edgar Hoover as exposed by James T. Tague’s book, “LBJ and the Kennedy Killing” that proved Oswald was innocent.

Tague was an eyewitness to the assignation and was wounded by a stray bullet.

On page 195, he wrote: “As I sit here in the year 2013, writing about the Kennedy assassination, and President Johnson’s order on secrecy to ban the JFK documents from the public for 75 years, I cannot help but think about what might be going on with our government today and President Obama.”

Tague died suddenly 3 months after his book was published and him being interviewed on TV.

He was from my hometown and my friend.

Very interesting, Rex, that you knew Tague.

Skip to the 30 min mark - the author says indirectly the people (conditioned by the Fed Govt) using Federal Reserve notes killed Kennedy because he was against the Federal Reserve. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh5DVvONTE0

My research indicates we the people have been slowly defrauded by the Fed govt since the Act of 1871 (which incorporated the Feds and the States) by eventually getting all people to become US citizens (federal employees with no inalienable rights in essence) via the 14th amendment via voluntary servitude (registering birth certificates, SS#, driver's licenses, voter registration, marriage certificates, etc).

No longer are people citizens of their respective states as it was intended in Article 4 of the Constitution. We are burdened by legalities and the gov't makes bankroll off our backs when all of us inadvertently commit "criminal" acts (violation of statues, codes and ordinances), but do not break the law (where there is a true victim).

Some good info in here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sD9dgDWPtKw

BTW: I think Trumps numbers would have been much higher if there was a voting system in place that was much less prone to voter fraud and manipulation. Perhaps Trump will change this. Easily accomplished if you love the truth and not a lie.

Also interesting is that Lincoln was probably assassinated for similar reasons as Kennedy - that he issued the Greenback and bankers in Europe weren't happy.

Money and power (banks) seem to be lurking behind many of the atrocities in America. I respect greatly someone like Ben Carson who doesn't jump immediately at the offers to be on Trump's cabinet. Said he is thinking about it, but knows he can also be of great influence apart from being appointed to the cabinet. I have friends/customers whose kids were his patients many years ago. Good man who would be a great leader (officially or unofficially).

Wayne,

Your links were very interesting. Did you notice how a ‘wall’ of secret service people road behind the President’s car until they reached Dealey Plaza? The car was told to stop being so close as the people could not see JFK.

The Vice-president’s car was to follow JFK’s car, but it was two cars back. Also 30 seconds before the first shot was fired a motorcycle policeman saw LBJ ducking down: <http://johnsonbushandnixonkilljohnfkennedy.blogspot.com/

I drove Tague for a couple of hours to find a guy who Tague heard he knew why Officer Tippit was shot, but the guy had died. I was one of only 16 people at Tague’s funeral three months after his book was published.

On pages 145-146 Tague wrote: “Deputy Sheriff Roger Craig heard a shrill whistle and saw a dark complected white male running down the Grassy Knoll from the direction of the Depository and jump into a Rambler station wagon. Craig disputed what the Warren Commission said about his testimony. He claimed they changed what he said. He would not stop talking to reporters that resulted in Sheriff Bill Decker firing him in 1967. The same year, a bullet grazed his head while walking in a parking lot. Every time he got a job Decker got him fired. In 1973, a car forced him off the road causing back injury. In 1974, he was shot by a shotgun. In 1975 he was seriously injured when his car engine blew up. The same year, he did a series of radio talk shows about someone running down the Grassy Knoll and getting into a Rambler station wagon. Soon afterwards, he was found dead of a “self-inflicted” gunshot.”
