The Philosopher King

Plato says this king is not like any other.

Can he led others, or follow when it is better to do so?

Does he know when the people are ready for a new law?

Are his personal values aligned with the values of the people?

Many captains of industry appear to hold the keys to the kingdom.

There are geniuses of every caliper, why not a wise living leader who can work with the people?

Some say this is just a catch all phrase for great leaders like Marcus Aurelius, Jesus Christ, Buddha, mahatma Gandhi, and many others.

Like all these great leaders, there was also good people willing to build a better way.

Who are these kings today?  Who are the good people?  What is the better way?

Subjectively we try to find a better way and practice it’s lessons and build a better life.

Collectively we collaborate and cooperate our teams to build a better way for many of us.

To all those philosopher’s, leaders, good people and better ways…
