All of these are imperative to a stable and successful kingdom. However Anderson argues that all of this glory and security was achieved through 'harsh measures of exploitation', which is evident through the evidence of taxation and forced labour Solomon inflicted on the country. Drane and Bright both agree that 'He had become like the kings of other nations in every bad sense', and he was 'the embodiment of all a king ought not to be'. Solomon's reign is a controversial one, and although he was successful in many ways, his greed and desire for absolute luxury brought out qualities that led to the disintegration of himself and Israel, particularly as a nation that followed Yahweh.
In ancient roman culture, being a man entailed much more than a difference in genitalia. In many ancient civilizations, a patriarchy was the main way to govern its citizens. Men were responsible for earning money, making decisions that could affect their household and/or their community, and fighting in battles that would inevitably change roman history. Ones reputation within their community would either make or break their ability to achieve certain goals in life. Whether it was to become a new merchant in the market, or to lead troops on their next expedition, a mans virtue controlled his fate.
This image is presented with a plethora of flattery and, in some cases, worshiped. The personality cult created surrounding Chairman Mao ensured that his beliefs would preserve long after his death. Mao Zedong acknowledged the importance of the mass. This insured a successful increase in population. Men were the backbone of this policy in order to provide protection for the nation.
The man who reaches this full potential, satisfies his innate desire to receive sympathy and ultimately benefits society.

One method in particular, stands alone as notorious in its advocacy for Black pride and power: Black Nationalism. Black Nationalism is a term that the majority of Americans have heard of before, but there are many misconceptions and misunderstandings regarding the concept. An easy place to begin is to define the tenets of Black Nationalism. Ray Block Jr. writes, “Black nationalism,” is a political and social system, “which emphasizes racial solidarity, self-definition, self-reliance, and self-determination,” Thomas 2 (Block 27). The notoriety of Black Nationalism stemmed from the controversy it caused when compared to Dr. Kings methods of nonviolence.
He created alternatives in this great nation. His ability to alter people’s minds through frequent speeches and appearances, where he spoke of his aspirations, was very admirable. Dr. King made it clear that all one needs is a driving passion for a worthy cause. Therefore, he had this driving passion, and these things are a part of what made him an effective leader. He was zealous about gaining equality, and he would not let his adversaries deny him of his goal.
He appealed to the basis of the country, the Constitution, Declaration, and the wishes of the forefathers to gain sympathy for his cause. However, it was not only his ideas and what he spoke about that made him so powerful and successful. Lincoln was a spectacular orator, one who could win over crowds and distill the most complex issues into terms that anyone could understand. He had not had a formal education, and could easily relate with the people he wanted to represent, which helped him get elected. His beliefs were strong enough that he would fight for them, but he was an excellent politician in that he knew where in the middle to settle to get enough votes to win.
Therefore, charisma is an essential characteristic of charismatic leadership. INSPIRE The nature of an effective leader is to portray self-confidence, integrity, enthusiasm, courage, moral commitment, emotional connection, and drive, as well as having an optimistic point of view. Having the title of a leader is more than attaining a set of leadership skills; being a leader also relies on personal qualities that may be hard to see, but are very powerful-such as charisma (Daft, p.18). A charismatic leader creates an emotional impact on people which inspires them to go above and beyond in any task. Such leaders gain followers through their source of influence from their personal characteristics rather than power or their position of authority.
The fourth section will explore more on the tensions between general and associative duties, to make an assessment on whether it is possible to simultaneously fulfil both obligations through the lens of a moderate cosmopolitanism. Section 1: Political Communities and their Obligations This section will seek to explain the key aspects which form the basis of the main argument. The main focus on the essay looks into a political community which is a collective arrangement between individuals that is intrinsically linked by a political relationship that encompasses rights and duties to all its members, it is through such membership that privileges and obligations are formed and are usually demarcated by political boundaries which draws a clear line between members and outsiders (Munoz 2012: 57).

The same set of meanings that defines the terrestrial world affects all of us relatively equally. All of our reception is received into our thought-processes through the same “ideological” process as our encounter with language. It is ideological in that the elements are received as a whole, as a systematic body of beings. To receive the plenum of elements is to receive an ideology of sorts.
