The REAL leaders are the people working toward a cause, ideal, a philosophy. They may attract fame, fortune and power – But that’s all secondary.
The faux leader, puppet, boss. Is driven completely by personal needs. Needs for greed, impress others, validate there existence, improve their environment… They may be supporting a real leader/idea, but their base driving force is personal gain.
The commoner is openly self-oriented and just surviving.
