“It doesn't take a majority to make a rebellion; it takes only a few determined leaders and a sound cause.” – Henry Louis Mencken
“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.” – Vince Lombardi
Again and again the protagonist pundits pontificate on the leaderless movement for Iranian freedom. Why? When, we have millions of leaders among us. Why do they not see them? They are the ones at the forefront of this revolution. How do we know they exist? We know of their existence as fact by witnessing the mere occurrences of the past few turbulent months. Who do you think organizes, contributes time or wealth, raises funds and awareness or lends their voice to this cause? Who do you think has been filling the wretched jails of Iran? Who do you think marches in the streets of Iran with life and death on the line?
Leadership is an active process, not an appointment. We need not anoint the likes of Mousavi or any other of his ilk as leader of a movement for freedom. When we have millions of brave individuals that are giving their lives for all of us Iranians and leading the way by example and personal sacrifice.
These are the leaders among us that seek no glory. They will naturally rise to the forefront of our collective consciousness when the time has come; when Iran is free, and hindsight clear, all will see the accomplishments of these future leaders of Iran.
