G is for Govern


Oh man, lead wisely!
your people seek your advice
crave wisdom, always.


Throughout history, heads of states imposed their ideas on their citizenry and many developed their craft of cunning, leading their subjects to doom. If it is true that to govern takes more daring than knowing, then we are all doomed.

It is possible for a head of state to govern wisely. He has only to employ the knowledgeable, the cunning, the wisest of men and women, whose total loyalty is unquestionable, but he must test their loyalty in subtle ways so as not to be obvious. This depiction describes the benevolent leader who is kind, yet firm; compassionate, yet unforgiving, but whose sole purpose is to ensure a long lasting reign. The collective input from his cadre ensures a sound decision a majority of the time. A faulty decision must be swiftly contained and covertly repressed.

Then there are leaders who govern with power and might, who have a steady stream of monies taken from their ignorant citizens under the guise of “taxes”, to be used at their will. Even if this leader has opponents, the tide always turns his way and his governance is absolute. His citizenry support his cause under the empty pathos of nationalism. His intelligence network has no loyalty to him, and information with the ability to change the course of a nation can be tainted and unsubstantiated. In this condition, lies and distrust rule. The leader is forced to make decisions based on faulty information, but make them he must. Should we empathize with the misinformed leader? Absolutely not. He determines the ultimate outcome. If the decision leads to a mistake, this brand of leader dares not apologize to his citizenry, for to do so is a sign of weakness and stupidity.

Those who write history must begin the slow process of destroying all literature that has propagated lies of their country and its leaders, and begin to write the truth. Only then will future heads of state learn the true art of governing that is best for their citizenry.
