γνῶθι σεαυτόν

We long for that special leader who will ignite socially responsible change. We wait and hope for that one special person who can lead us out of this unjust and deteriorating economical slavery. We are only fooling ourselves into continued submission with our longing, waiting, and hoping. To paraphrase Debs, if any one person could lead us out of oppression, then any one person could lead us right back in. The answer to our problems is in the mirror!

This has actually crossed my mind too, Atu. Thanks for tossing it out there. What are we REALLY expecting when we ask for things of others that we are not willing to do [or even pay attention to] ourselves?
