Lead By Example?

Lead by example?  As in, set the standard?  Do unto others as you'd have them to unto each other?

But seriously.  We elect Joe and Jane Frontporches because we want folk in charge who are just like us, don't we?  Surely we don't expect our leaders to be Superman?

We don't see our society as an equation.  We've got a mind-set that is anti-systematic.  We don't want to be held accountable by society and therefore, elect and support those who equally give the finger to systematic accountability.  Until we change this view, we can't but expect more of the same.

It's almost like a cycle, isn't it?
