Daily Question: 2/21/11

What compels someone to lead others?

I think there are a few things that would compel someone to lead others. First, some people may want to lead others just to be in power and for no one to be able to deny them or rule over them. Another reason why someone would want to lead others is just because they think that they can bring the most to heir country and be a benefit to the country. For example, in the United States we elect a president as a country, so the people going into presidency don't want to be president for power but they want to be the leader of the country for our country to thrive. Also, people may choose a leader because they feel that they will be best for their country. In ancient Greece, they put Themistocles in power because they thought he would be the most beneficial for them. I do not know if Themistocles was planning on being in power, but he was voted on by the people because of his good plans. 


  1. This was a very good post to start the week off with. Il liked how you put examples in your post to really explain your pint of view. I think if you do posts like this, you will do fine this semester with your dailies.

  2. I really like the examples you used. Some people just want to be leaders because they want to be thought of as better than everyone else. Good job!
