There are so many threads asking why we don't want a leader. I think it would be nice if we could put this issue to rest by having your feedback on why it is so important in a true democracy to not have one person speaking for the masses. So please lets explain to the doubters why this revolutionary concept of a leaderless, non-hierarchical movement makes so much sense?

It doesn't. It's anarchy. It's nonsense and it's absurd.

And it's not really leaderless. That's a lie. There's a bunch of anarchists running this movement. Thus, the resulting anarchy. Holding this movement back from the potential of being a political force to affect change by ending government corruption. And lots more good stuff.

You only need a leader if you wish to continue being sheep. I think we can all be leaders at this particular time in history.

I'm sure it is very frustrating to the establishment that they don't have a specific leader. Normally as soon as a leader is named that they spend lots of $ from their political "war chests" digging up dirt in an effort to defame them. Right now it is a moving target, so they have had to paint the whole movement with a broad brush.

The benefit is that you cant sleep with the boss to become leader.
