Havel and Il: a (fairly obvious) lesson for leaders

The deaths of two heads of state were in the news yesterday. One was a champion of freedom, the other a tyrant.

A lesson for leaders, whether of nations or businesses or churches or households: You can seek to amass as much power as possible, and perhaps succeed. Then you will be feared– and detested.

Or you can serve for the good of others. You will probably have less power. But you will be respected and loved.
