We are not always in control, as much as we’d like to be. Most of the time, we are put under others’ authority. What happens when the authority is less than desirable? What can we do?
Usually, nothing. When leadership is truly bad, trying to talk it over and work it out would be in vain. Respect is still required, as it is with all human beings. Overthrow attempts or coups usually only bring discord and tight control. The only solution, I believe, would be to become closer to one another, as those underneath the authority figure. . Units are less easily harmed than individuals. Penguins huddle together to protect themselves from the cold. So, as humans, can’t we huddle together when times get chilly?
No matter who is leader, authority, president, or whatever, people who care will stick together. Take comfort in that.
