Leadership is a trait some people want and others don’t. A leader should be able to see the big picture of situations and have a long term goal on mind. A leader should also know how to get to their goal and how to confront any problems or obstacles in their way. They should care about whom they lead and listen to any who want their opinion to be heard. A leader should be almost completely selfless and benevolent. They should focus on the well-being of the whole group/nation and not their own.
For example the republican candidates in the presidential primaries are not at all selfless, not even slightly. They are only focused on bettering their own lives. They could care less if they lead us to financial collapse as long as their money is safe and secure, so they do not have to worry and keep amassing wealth. That is not a leader that cares about the people they lead, that is a fascist.
