The philosophical counselor can draw attention to this fact, that we let us lead, that we are lacking the ability ourselves to think, the ability ourselves to live right.
We are dependent of, that someone tells us how we shall act, and what we shall think.
The whole of our system of upbringing is based on, what we shall think, and not how we shall think, and therefore we need leaders.
But the existent postmodern chaos, which we call freedom and democracy, doesn´t need new leaders. It demands something completely different; that will say: any person must himself become a light, not being dependent on any other, in philosophical sense.
