The System, the Idea and the Leader — Five Ideas for Seeking Meaning in My Life

It is the main doctrine of the organization system that has done more than any other system in the world to bring prosperity to mankind — the movement to establish a tightly-knit society in which power is vested in a few citizens and none are in absolute power, in which the people, especially women, are governed in unity and cooperation, in which there is fair treatment for all.

In 2,500 years, some 350 democracies have transformed into one, more or less voluntarily, forming what a Western expert calls “the best organized and likely most prosperous” civilization in history.

Organizational systems have a lot to do with our conception of authority and with what we want to be — or for whom we are — in this world. The success of one organization has a direct impact on the system and on the people within it. This is true for millions of “dot-com” companies, for the “French kiss,” for a politician running for election. We are inspired by people who challenge the conventional values of authority. We like what I call in some books “charismatic transgressive individuals” — people who spread a new idea or bring a new way of thinking about an idea or about political life. These people are not conventionally organized and they are by their very nature spontaneous, noisy, ever-inventive and ever-rewarding.
