In Dumb Little Man post today, and add to mine to read list, (Link) Leader Jazz, book.
Others, 5 important questions for leader who intend to rule by democratic system, I altered them a bit,

Where did I get it from?
In whose interests do I use it?
To whom am I accountable?
How do I get rid of me and find someone better?
