Brevard County Judge Removed From Bench. What Happens When Those In Authority Taint An Entire System
Character makes the difference between those who will not abuse their authority, and those who act like street fighters, bullies, or are criminally minded. The way one behaves in a negative situation, with self-control, is a quality of a good person and a good leader.
People have problems. They have bad days. They go through stressful situations. When they hold positions of power, they cannot allow problems or stress to cause them to do the wrong things. They cannot abuse their authority because of personal problems or stress. They must be above reproach.
Super humans? In a way, yes. When people are placed in positions of authority to do super things, the public expects them to always be professional and have the interests of the people they serve as priority.
Just imagine someone who lacks self-control telling others what they should or must do and having the authority to punish or retaliate when people don’t obey them.
There must be millions of people who have completed their educational goals and did everything just right, but they don’t have what it takes to handle authority. When I say authority, I’m thinking about those positions where the lives of others can be ruined by a stroke of the pen, or the pulling of a trigger, or when signing Executive Orders.
