On the nature of groups and leaders

People form groups to be shielded from the vagaries of external reality. The function of the leader is to manage the perception of external reality so that people desire to be in the group.

This why leaders deceive, and act without self-doubt. A leader cannot pursue the truth. In fact, it is easier if the leader is inclined to be comfortable with deception and narcissistic self-certitude.
