Negative Leaders Impact on Society

- A leader should have a sense of boldness. To be bold is to not be fearful in the face of possible danger.
- In the play Julius Caesar, Cassius is a character that strongly displays this quality. During the play, Cassius manipulated the other conspirators to band together and kill Caesar. He waited until Brutus was at “war with himself” and once Cassius knew he was vulnerable, that’s when he conducted his objective.
- As a result, the commoners rioted and plotted revenge, causing death not only among the conspirators but innocent men as well. In the end, Cassius killed himself in battle for fear of “defeat”. Cassius’s actions led to many deaths throughout the play including his own. By influencing the other accomplices, Cassius was able to execute a major leader and society was in a state of turmoil.
-Vision is very important when a group of people are deciding who they want to lead them.- Bashar al-Assad had vision to convert Syria into a democracy and have a cultural revolution take place.
-He gave up and went back to Syria's dictatorial ways just like his father.
-Its' great for a leader to have vision, but not if they do not follow through thus giving false hopes to the people.
- One quality of a leader is confidence. Joseph Stalin was always confident in death as a solution. As exemplified by his famous quote: "Death is the solutions to all problems. No man - no problem."
- Stalin ruled with an "iron fist." Many people were killed in his "reign of terror." Once Stalin had his power anyone who refused to hand over their land were executed.
- When Stalin was dead there are and estimated 500 people that dies just trying to get a look at his corpse as prove that he was indeed dead.
- Many leaders use confidence as a way to gain power; however, Stalin's ways led people to cheering after his death.
