Book List: Sex and the Senses – Leadership

“The average successful leader of public opinion does not question the beliefs, prejudices or taboos of those whom he leads. He accepts them; that is why he in turn is acceptable as a leader. Success within a given environment is predicated on the readiness to accept its standards. The people clamor for a leader willing to be led. For a passing hour such a one is accorded the homage of hero-worship. Soon another takes his place, one capable of appealing to the repressed passions of the populace from a slightly new angle. In worshiping its leaders the people are really paying homage to their own infantile passions.”

~James Samuel Van Teslaar, Sex and the Senses
