On Being a Leader (MLI)

Just to clear up any remaining confusion: "emerging" means "not there yet." When, therefore, someone speaks of an "emerging leader," that someone is not referring to a finished, polished, and refined leader who is available for All The Public Scrutiny™.

Of course, none of this ever gives anyone permission to creep-stalk anyone else in the dark of night with a videocamera to record another person or group of persons. It does not give anyone permission to use the resulting footage to worm out the identities of participants of a programme that you don't like and publicise that information all over the place.

There are many ways to support a people oppressed by a genocidal regime. Demonstrating an utter lack of respect to other people and their safety should not enter the mind as one of the possibilities.
