What true leaders are for

Not all animals have leaders, although some animal groups are led by the strongest. There are some animals who lead solitary lives by solving their own problems by themselves. However, man does choose his leaders geographically, socially, politically, religiously and so on. For example, man chooses household group heads, village heads, mayors, commissioners, national leaders, regional leaders, global leaders, moral leaders, religious leaders, just to name a few of them.
Man chooses leaders because his world is full of conflicts of every kind, including political conflicts, racial conflicts, religious conflicts, territorial conflicts, business conflicts and so on. As these conflicts are beyond one’s control, man has to live in societies and chooses leaders to deal with the conflicts. Therefore, man always looks for someone who can deal with the conflicts man faces. As man looks for leaders, there are many people who want to be leaders. However, not every one of them becomes a real leader. This is because they don’t have the ability to stop the conflicts. Some of them create more virulent conflicts and become notorious villains in history such as the Nazi leader Adolph Hitler.
Conflicts are always based on interests. When one group takes more than it should, a conflict begins because there are many other groups that suffer. Some conflicts are open while others are dormant. It doesn’t mean that dormant ones are not as serious as open ones. Some dormant conflicts can be more virulent than open ones. Almost all conflicts can be stopped by doing what one is supposed to do, by taking what one should, demanding what one deserves, giving others what they ought to own and not allowing anyone to take more than they should. Real leaders never create or fuel conflicts. They put an end to conflicts that troublemakers have started.
