Company values

A few years ago, a professor at Harvard School of Business wrote a beautiful dissertation about the attributes of a true leader. He said, "A true leader doesn't compromise on issues of their company's basic values. Compromise and negotiations dilute those values and vacillation and inconsistency make it extremely difficult for outsiders to take the company's values seriously."

It's a shame that this professor didn't work in the Political Science department of that famous factory up in New England that turns out so many politicians. His philosophy, if applied to running our country, would be a refreshing relief from what we've experienced in the past half century. Compromise ("Pork") is abundant in every bill passed by legislators.
