Define Your Rule !


Familarity breeds contempt is a very good rule.

The stars remain far above the Earth.

You must keep a distance from all but your closest of relations.

Once people see everything of a leader he loses his aura and with
it the authority and mystique he may have created.

For example, Ronald Reagan was known to many as an excellent leader.

He carefully cultivated his image of a folksy, considerate politician who kept
the interest of the United States first and foremost, he commanded attention and respect in his dark suits, surrounded by the trappings of power such as political aides, security officers and a convoy of limousines.

As soon as he appeared, thoughts of authority and power came to our minds.

Did you ever see the President with his shirt off swimming at his pool?

How about in his dressing gown after waking up after one of his long sleeps,hair tousled and beard grown?

Reagan’s handless never allowed such glimpses because they detract from the perception of authority.

The America nation was not exposed to these slights.

In the Clinton Era things changed and you saw the President eating Big Macs and
wearing baseball caps with a full business suit.

Whilst these scenes may be endearing to the public, there is little doubt that
President Clinton was more familiar to us, merely another one of us and, unlike
the stars above, much closer to the ground.
